Diego Rivera’s Cinematic Muse

"During the Golden Age of national cinema, Diego Rivera looked to Matilde Palou for inspiration. Rivera’s portrait of the Mexican actress, part of Sotheby’s Latin America: Modern Art Evening Sale on 25 May in New York, not only nods to a great era of film and art, but it also serves as a testament to the pride of the Mexican people. Watch the video to discover Rivera’s mastery of twentieth-century portraiture."
