Description:
Diego Rivera (Mexican, 1886-1957) Portrait of a Woman Holding a Child, Possibly The Mexican Mart Signed and dated "Diego Rivera 1934" l.r. Watercolor and conté crayon on Japan paper, sheet size approx. 15 x 11 in. (38.1 x 27.9 cm), framed. Condition: Subtle rippling/paper irregularities, sandwiched between window mat and backing sheet. Provenance: Collection of David L. Neumann (b. 1902), long-time Santa Fe dealer and scholar on Navajo turquoise, Navajo silversmithing, and American Spanish Colonial crafts. Following his graduation from the University of Michigan in 1925, Neumann attended the Académie Julian and resided in Paris's Montparnasse. Around 1928, Neumann returned to the United States, where he traveled extensively through the American Southwest, trading on reservations and in Mexico in the 1930s and 1940s. From 1932 to 1954, Neumann contributed a series of articles to the venerable El Palacio magazine on the status of Navajo Indian silverwork. Photographer Manuel Álvarez Bravo documented the work of Mexican mural painters including Diego Rivera. While the subject of the present work is unknown, it may depict a patron at Neumann's retail shop in Miami, Florida, called "The Mexican Mart," which he operated from the early to mid-1930s. N.B. Eight gelatin silver prints (seven by Bravo, two stamped and five unstamped) including one depicting the present work inscribed "Mr. David Newman [ sic ]--/'The Mexican Mart' Oct-9-34." on the reverse, accompany the lot. The edges of the sheet are not visible as the front mat is affixed to the backing mat all the way around, although the sheet itself is rippled so it is not laid down. There are no other issues to report. All seven of the photographs by Bravo depict Diego Rivera works; the eighth photograph by an unidentified photographer depicts a work by Carlos Camarra.

Description:
PROPERTY FROM THE COLLECTION OF CEIL AND MICHAEL PULITZER Diego Rivera Turkey Market, circa 1935 watercolor on rice paper 15 x 10 7/8 in. (38.1 x 27.6 cm.) Signed "Diego Rivera" upper edge. Provenance Mary-Anne Martin Fine Art, New York Acquired from the above by the present owner, 2005 "The earliest memory I have is that I was drawing ." Diego Rivera One of the greatest Mexican artists of the Twentieth century, Diego Rivera is widely celebrated as a seminal figure in Latin American Modernism. His dynamic compositions and vibrant palettes masterfully depict Mexico’’s native culture and landscape, frequently alluding to stark socioeconomic and political realities. During the artist’’s youth, his father worked as a government official, dealing with social reforms to help the working poor. His family’’s commitment to the plight of the working class was a major influence in Rivera’’s life, ultimately becoming the focus of his creative production. As a child, Rivera spent hours covering the walls of his home with drawings, foreshadowing the prolific artist he would become. He later attended the San Carlos Academy of Fine Arts in Mexico City and continued his education in Europe. During his time in Paris, Rivera was exposed to the avant-garde proposals of Piet Mondrian, Amadeo Modigliani and Pablo Picasso. Fascinated by Cubism, Rivera stated, "Everything about the movement fascinated and intrigued me. It was a revolutionary movement, questioning everything that had been said and done in art." After his return to Mexico, Rivera merged his interest in artistic innovation with his passion for furthering social change. The present lot, Turkey Market, 1935, exemplifies Rivera’’s move away from Cubism towards a realism that communicates the essence of his native Mexico, tinged with the socio-political concerns that he actively voiced throughout his life. His subject in Turkey Market is a woman carrying a child on her back while determinedly going about the business of the day. Her direct gaze and robust features convey a hard-working, dignified individual, noble in her determination to rise above the plight of her socio-economic conditions.
