Description

During the 1920s, following ten years of political conflict, the Mexican government commissioned the country's most prominent artists to create civic murals that addressed a broad public and celebrated Mexico’s history and goals for the future. Diego Rivera created this print based on a detail from one such commission, created for the Secretariat of Public Education in Mexico City.
