Diego Rivera’s extensive artistic production made him paint a wide variety of themes, including portraits of models, friends, and indigenous Mexicans, as well as historical subjects and landscapes, such as the Sunsets series. After receiving medical treatment in Moscow, Rivera accepted Dolores Olmedo’s invitation to rest and convalesce in her house in Acapulco. Located near La Quebrada, the house offers a spectacular view of the beach and the bay, which was captured by the painter at different times of the day, in different atmospheres. In this painting, Rivera portraited the daughter of Dolores Olmedo, who was with a friend, and they were supposed to study, but they rather took a rest with the beautiful background of Acapulco bay behind.
