William Spratling

In 1926, Spratling made his first visit to Mexico, returning each summer until finally moving there permanently in 1929.  He was welcomed into the artistic community, becoming friends with Diego Rivera, whose art Spratling promoted in the United States.  With funding from the Carnegie Institute, Spratling organized the first exhibition of Mexican art in the United States, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.  The exhibit featured Rivera’s murals as well as some of Spratling’s own work.  Using commissions from Rivera, Spratling purchased a home in Taxco, silver jewelry capital of the world.
