This panel illustrates the operation of a sugar plantation in the southern state of Morelos, Mexico, during the Spanish colonial period. In creating the scene, Rivera adapted an image he had formerly made for a mural cycle at the Palace of Cortez in Cuernavaca, Mexico. Sugar Cane was specifically commissioned for the Museum of Modern Art's Diego Rivera exhibition of 1931.
