Diego Rivera, one of the “Big Three” of Mexican Muralism, featured portraits of everyday people in his murals. Many of these images are the result of small-format studies of people he knew, which he painted in his studio. His sitters included household staff, their children, and his own daughters. In turn, he revisited fragments of his larger paintings, re-working them in smaller format, as in "El niño del taco." The image in this lithograph is taken from one of Rivera’s murals from the Secretariat of Public Education. It features a boy eating a taco as a Mexican hairless dog eagerly awaits a crumb.
