was a child he got to meet Frida and Diego.
They used to visit his parent's workshop. Tiburcio's
mother, Modesta Fernandez created wonderful
trees of life that were greatly admired by Frida and
Diego. He taught them how to use better pigments on
their arboles so the paint wouldn't fade.
Many of Modesta
Fernandez's trees of life are exhibited in the Museo
Frida Kahlo, the blue house in Coyoacan where Frida and
Diego used to live.
There is now an exhibition , "Great Masters of Mexican Popular

America, Madrid, Spain and it is now at the
Crocker Art Museum. (May
