Bowers Museum

The sacred text of the Popol Vuh is the tale of the origins, traditions, and history of the Quiché-Maya people. Reflecting his passionate interest in Pre-Columbian cultures, in 1931, the renowned Mexican muralist Diego Rivera produced a series of watercolors to illustrate this sacred book. Though they have been published together, these are now scattered in a variety of collections around the world. Popol Vuh: Diego Rivera and the Pre-Hispanic World at the Bowers Museum December 12, 2015–March 13, 2016, is the first United States presentation of seventeen of these compelling watercolors from the collection of the Museo Casa Diego Rivera in Guanajuato, Mexico. These paintings not only breathe life into the powerful creation story of an ancient civilization but also provide insight into Rivera’s passionate and creative vision of the pre-Hispanic world.
