Top Ten Paintings and Murals by Diego Rivera

       Diego Rivera (December 8, 1886 – November 24, 1957), full name Diego María de la Concepción Juan Nepomuceno Estanislao de la Rivera y Barrientos Acosta y Rodríguez, was a Mexican painter and muralist, born in Guanajuato, Guanajuato, of Jewish Converso heritage. Rivera went to Paris, France, to live and work with the great gathering of artists in Montparnasse where his friend Amedeo Modigliani painted his portrait in 1914. In his undisciplined and increasingly violent private life, Rivera fathered several children from brief affairs, abandoning all of them. Whilst still married to Angelina Beloff, who bore him a son who died during earliest infancy, Rivera embarked on a relationship with the Russian emigrée Cubist painter Marie Vorobieff-Stebelska, known also by the nickname Marevna given her by Maxim Gorky, who herself in 1919 bore Rivera a daughter, named Marika.
