Maximo Pacheco (1907-1992)

He was born in Huichapan, in the state of Hidalgo, Mexico, in 1907.  Pacheco was an assistant to Diego Rivera on some murals from 1921-1926 (to be succeeded by Pablo Higgins).  He was a member of the Sindicato de Pintores.  

Jean Charlot and David Siquieros convinced Pacheco that he had talent as an artist.  Pacheco had a one-man show in Mexico City which was a hit.  He was able to live on his wages as an artist.  

He exhibited at the Pan-American Union in Washington, DC, in 1959, at the Tate, London, in 1953, at the Musee National d'Art Moderne, Paris, in 1952, and at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in 1943.
