Diego Rivera painting “Rivera aromatica”

In 1949 the Mexican painter Diego Rivera painted “Vendedora de flores”. The painting, currently in the Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid, is painted in oil on a canvas measuring 180 cm high by 150 cm.

The artist Amaury Dubois, who is passionate about Mexico, had fun reworking Rivera’s painting in his own way. The oil painting, on a slightly smaller canvas than that of Diego Rivera, takes up the general composition and the colours of the original work. The artist makes a very colourful figurative painting, while taking up in his own way the characters and the spirit of the painting, giving it a completely new aesthetic and spiritual dimension.Like Diego Rivera, the characters surround the saleswoman who seems to be their mother. They help her by making the bouquets of arums with their stiff and heavy stems. The woman is carrying a huge bouquet on her back, held by a cloth belt, and in her arms a bouquet handed to her by the young girl sitting in front of her.

But in Amaury Dubois’ painting, the light is at the heart of the picture, it emerges from the hands of the two women who are reaching out to each other, from the bouquet of arums held by the flower seller, from the belt that has been transformed into a huge heart on her chest. This light seems to push a screaming head back into the shadows and resembles that of Munch’s character “The Scream”. Thus life pushes back death, friendship pushes back anguish…

Picasso’s typical characters are immediately recognisable, enjoying their night fishing in an abstract landscape of lines and shapes. Dubois uses the colours chosen by Picasso, but twists and illuminates them differently to create an emotional and dynamic reproduction, considered one of the artist’s most famous works.
