Note Card Narrative

Diego Rivera, Mexican 1886-1957

Gift of Josephine Wallace KixMiller in memory of her mother, Julie F. Miller, who purchased the painting from the artist at his studio in Mexico in 1936


A leader of the Mexican muralist movement in the 1920s, Diego Rivera sought to challenge social and political iniquities, often turning to indigenous themes to foster pride in Mexican culture. In Weaving, Rivera depicted the centuries-old tradition of weaving with a back-strap loom. The woman, a well-known weaver, expert in the Nahuatl language, and popular artists’ model named Luz Jiménez, appears intently focused on creating the intricate red, blue, white, and black pattern of the fabric that is rolled up in her lap. Placed against the spare background of Rivera’s studio, the weaver’s actions take on greater significance and dignity.
