Comment(s): Our example is one of a series of photos of Leon Trotsky, Diego Rivera, and André Breton that were taken by Fritz Bach in 1938. Bach was an economist and a communist who in 1937 met Trotsky and Rivera in Mexico. Rivera supported Trotsky, alienating himself from the Communist mainstream in Mexico; he requested the Mexican President Cardenas to grant Trotsky’s asylum. The Russian and his wife Natalia lived with Rivera and wife Frida Kahlo, rent-free and under 24-hour guard, for the next two years. [28040-1-800]
