When Diego Rivera returned to Mexico in 1921, he recaptured the popular themes, which reflected the modus vivendi of his people. Although at first he seemed to commit himself to social causes, he would never cease to depict the work, struggles, fiestas, traditions, and customs of the common Mexican people, as well as many other expressions of their daily lives. Sometimes a simple glance at a market would be enough to create whether a drawing or a watercolor, such as this Cabbage Seller that captures, in a few schematic lines, the activity of a vendor walking through the tianguis, or street market, offering his goods.
