The Flower Seller is one of Diego Rivera’s best known paintings. It depicts a young woman kneeling before a large bundle of Cala Lilies. The young woman’s clothes are typical of those worn by early 20th century Mexican women, simple, yet colorful. The double braids indicate that this is a young girl, not yet married. The Calla Lily is indigenous to Mexico and was represented by Rivera in many of his works. Rivera most likely incorporates the flora to signify that the girl remains pure and undefiled.
