Mexican Folk Painting is as varied as Mexican culture and the many other folk art styles in the country. Diego Rivera said that Mexican folk painting was the most important painting style in the country because instinct and genius are present in it without the prejudice that makes the painter imitate the European culture.

In this depiction the suitor has hired a ban of mariachis to serenade the girl that he loves by the light of the moon. The Mexican flag is displayed proudly on the roof of the hacienda.
