The Flower Carrier.

Name: The Flower Carrier.
Artist: Diego Rivera
Location: San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
Year: 1935

This is, arguably, Rivera's most famous painting. A campesino (labourer) dressed in white is kneeling on the earth bent under an enormous burden of flowers he carries on his back; behind him a woman reaches out and helps to steady his burden. The beauty of the rich colours, the rugged dark brown faces, the man's large hands, the woman's serene countenance, all call the viewer into a relationship with the story. The composition is breathtaking, the enormity of the basket, the radiance of the flowers, the definition of the strap all combine into an image of unforgettable beauty.
