Diego Rivera's 125th Birthday






Picture this 1930s scene. Now picture the current "Occupy Wall Street" movement. Seem familiar?

Google pays tribute today to Mexican mural painter Diego Rivera, one of the great artists of the early 20th century. The search engine replaced its normal logo with an industrial landscape in honor of what would have been the artist's 125th birthday

In its review of the current Rivera exhibit at the MOMA, The New York Times called the painter "one of the great artists of his time."

He also shared the spotlight with his famous wife, artist Frida Kahlo. Google created a doodle celebrating Kahlo in 2010.
