Rivera was a Mexican painter, noted especially for his large mural paintings made from the 1920s onward. He lived in Paris most of the previous decade and painted in a cubist style between 1913 and 1917. The objects here include a flask, a wine glass, a soda syphon and a tin or container of Charter Oak Milk on a table. The artist has included his own signature and the date of the painting (‘DR/anno 16’) on the milk label.
