Gregorio Lopez y Fuentes (1897-1966) was one of the most important chroniclers of the Mexican Revolution. His writings began simply as novels, but he grew in popularity as he pulled from his own experiences during the Revolution. He was awarded the National Prize of Arts and Sciences in 1935. Diego Rivera (1886-1957), known for his influence in establishing the Mexican mural movement, occasionally translated his Cubism and Post-Impressionism styles into smaller-scale illustrations for texts like El Indio.
