Diego Rivera is celebrated by the author Gerry Souter as a virtuoso Mexican muralist, who brought to the medium his intense story-telling talent and ideological convictions to express legends and myths. His easel paintings and drawings, which constitute a large body of both his early and late work, are also represented in the book. Author of Kahlo, Souter overcomes his huge admiration for Diego Rivera to give the artist a human dimension, as evidenced by his political choices, love affairs and belief that Mexico provided the language of his thoughts, the blood in his veins and the azure sky above his resting place.
The Mega Square Rivera provides a complete overview of this famous artist's work and life. Its small and practical format makes it the perfect gift.
