Diego Rivera: Legendary Mexican Painter
"An artist is above all a human being," said Diego Rivera. In his art, Rivera aimed to give everlasting fame to the poor people of Mexico. For him, the humblest, least educated citizen was as important as the wealthiest. Rivera painted murals on walls in public spaces because he believed that art must be made available to everyone, not just those who visit museums. A larger-than-life man in appearance and personality, Rivera was also known for stirring controversy with his art and his actions. From his revolutionary politics to his tempestuous personal life, readers will be fascinated by the vividly drawn life story of the most famous Mexican artist of the twentieth century.
