Diego Rivera

An Artist for the People

Foreword Review — Summer 2013

The fascinating story of Mexican artist Diego Rivera’s (1886-1957) upbringing and artistic and political evolution is paired with stunning reproductions of his murals and photos of the artist at work. This biography of this master painter who married another master, Frieda Kahlo, is also a visual record of our nation’s growth as an industrial power. Included are a glossary of art terms and a list of places to see his work. Ages eight and up.
