Throughout the 20th century and up to the present, artists in Cuba and elsewhere have continued to depict Martí. In this monumental mural, the Mexican artist Diego Rivera (1886 – 1957) painted Martí in the midst of assembled historical figures, notable citizens, Indians and workers. Mindful perhaps of Martí's exile from Mexico by Porfirio Diaz, who disliked his activism, Rivera has inserted him into the mural in the company of Diaz's wife and daughter and Frida Kahlo. Just in front of Kahlo and Martí, we see Rivera depicting himself as a childlike figure.
