La casserole rouge (1951), oil on canvas, 114 x 146 cm, Mus�e Bernard Monet

Diego Rivera (1886-1957) usually signed his masterpieces with his full name "Diego Rivera." His signature was relatively consistent. He wrote in a cursive script that is very legible and easy to distinguish.

Some of Rivera's signatures include the date or the Communist hammer and sickle. River often signed his murals in obscure places within the image, rather than loudly pronouncing his authorship. His signature is more obvious on his paintings and prints, often written in a bold black paint.

Signature is rarely sufficient for authenticating a painting. Signatures must be checked, but results must be carefully placed in the correct context. A signature is only one element, and not a determining one, in the process of authentication.
