Today Is Art Day Pin - Calla Lily Vendor - Diego Rivera
About Calla Lilly Vendor
Throughout his career, Diego Rivera represented the everyday lives of indigenous peoples of Mexico. Among his most iconic subjects were calla lily vendors. They can be seen in murals, canvas paintings and watercolors.
In this version a jubilant bundle of calla lilies dominates the canvas. In the foreground two women wear traditional fringed shawls, or rebozo, which were not only decorative but utilitarian: the length of the fabric could be used to tie the basket to a vendor’s back.
