Did You Know?

To create the vivid yellow background of this lithograph, Diego Rivera's master printer, George C. Miller, used a "tone stone" that imprinted a white sheet of paper with colored ink.


Following the Mexican Revolution, artists throughout the country began to create works that celebrated the country's history and future. In this print, Diego Rivera shows a gathering of figures in indigenous costume gathering to exchange flowers, suggesting Mexico's bounty. Such images formed an important statement about national identity at a time of constant change.
