Murales de Diego Rivera en la Secretaría de Educación Pública
Here one can admire the first great murals by Diego Rivera, which reflect his ideas about the 1910 revolution, Mexican identity and the country's working classes. The paintings, created between 1923 and 1928, cover an area of 1,585 square meters divided into two parts. On the lower floor are pieces such as The Liberation of the Farm laborer and The Rural Schoolmistress, clearly alluding to the theme of the 1910 revolution. The stairway is decorated with a Mexican landscape, and on the top floor there is a pictorial representation of the life of revolutionary leader Emiliano Zapata. Out in the patio, the artist depicted his ideas of the ambivalent nature of Mexicans, especially in scenes such as those found in The Day of the Dead.
