Description

Rivera began drawing at the age of three, a year after his twin brother died. When he was caught drawing on the walls of the house, his parents installed chalkboards and canvas on the walls to encourage him.  We encourage you to create using this sketchbook of Rivera's fresco in the museum's collection.  This panel illustrates the operation of a sugar plantation in the southern state of Morelos, Mexico, during the Spanish colonial period. In creating the scene, Rivera adapted an image he had formerly made for a mural cycle at the Palace of Cortez in Cuernavaca, Mexico. Sugar Cane was specifically commissioned for the Museum of Modern Art's Diego Rivera exhibition of 1931.
