Diego Rivera was born in Guanajuato, Guanajuato in December 8, 1886. Rivera was descended from Spanish nobility on his fathers side. From the age of ten Rivera studied art at the Academy of San Carlos in Mexico City. He was then later sponsored to keep studying art in Europe. He was sponsored by Teodoro A. Dechesa Mendez, the Governor of State of Veracruz.
After his arrival in Europe in 1907, Rivera initially went to study with Eduardo Chicharro in Madrid, Spain. It was from there that Rivera moved to Paris, France. He worked with a great gathering or artist in the Montparnasse and La Ruche. It was there where his friend Amedeo Modigliani painted his portrait in 1914.
During this time Paris was experiencing cubism in painting, which was eminent in painters such as Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. From 1914 to 1917 Rivera embraced this new school of art. Rivera shifted towards post-impressionism after being inspired by a Paul Cezanne's painting. His paintings began to attract attention.
In 1920, Rivera left to Italy after being urged bythe Mexican Ambassador to France, Alberto J. Pani. Rivera traveled through Italy studying its art Renaissance frescoes. Rivera returned to Mexico in 1921 to be part of the Mexican Mural Program, planned by vasconcelos. Rivera developed his own native style which was based on large simplified shapes, bold colors, and Aztec influences.
His art similar to the steles of the Maya, tell stories. Rivera's radical beliefs, attacks on the church and clergy made him a controversial figure, even in communist circles. Rivera has many of his painting in many museums of art, which span across countries around the world.
Montblanc commemorates Diego Rivera with this Limited Edition Fountain Pen. The overall shape of this writing instrument is inspired by Rivera's many works. The cap is a most striking skeleton which mimics the staircase of the National Palace, where he would display his huge murals. Aztec motifs adorn the cone and ring trim. The cap is a radiant orange, which is the dominant color of Rivera's paintings. The clip of this creation is also inspired by one of his works (the stylised sun) and features a sapphire jewel. The nib is 18k gold and features an engraving of Diego Rivera's face. Magnificent graphics of Mexican origin decorate the pen. Crowning the cap is the Montblanc star in its famous mother of pearl.
Only 70 creations made for the entire world.The limitation is referring to hi sage (70 years old) when he died (November 24th, 1957).
The pen comes in pristine and full set condition. It has never been used nor inked. Scarce Artisan model from the Montblanc Painters and Artists series.
