Standing opposite from Angelina Belloff is Russian Cuban painter Maria Dolores Bastian.

Description

Rivera's growing confidence in his ability to achieve complete integration of figures with their surroundings is seen in this painting, one of his largest and most ambitious Cubist compositions. Here Rivera placed two women (one of whom was his common-law wife, Angelina Beloff) against an outdoor scene with buildings. He thus expanded the setting to suggest physical and psychological continuity with a larger environment.
