Diego Rivera by Pete Hamill( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Like his contemporary, Pablo Picasso, the Mexican artist Diego Rivera (1886-1957) was a man of enormous energy, astonishing versatility, and voracious appetites. Rivera made his mark as one of the greatest muralists of the twentieth century. His dramatic public life involved him in the deepest contradictions of art and politics. The great years of Rivera's art - the 1920s and early 1930s - saw an outpouring of work that was equal to the achievement of any twentieth-century master." "Pete Hamill's Diego Rivera narrates the life and explores the art of this remarkable figure: prodigiously productive artist, polemicist and political activist, Mexican nationalist, and lover of many women. Acknowledging the cost of Rivera's didactic communism, Hamill focuses on what is enduring in his work." "Pete Hamill has served as editor in chief of the New York Daily News, the New York Post, and the Mexico City News."--Jacket

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A new survey of the masterworks of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, set against the backdrop of Mexican Modernism. Few artists have captured the public's imagination with the force of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. Icons respectively of surrealism and the Mural Movement, their work reflected their immersion in indigenous Mexican culture while looking ahead to progressive ideals and wielding a defining influence on Mexican Modernism. Brought together for a unique exhibition at the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, this catalog includes more than thirty masterpieces by Kahlo and Rivera from the renowned Gelman Foundation Collection in Mexico City, among them such iconic works as Kahlo's 'Autorretrato con Monos' (Self-Portrait with Monkeys) and 'Diego en Mi Pensamiento' (Diego on My Mind), and 'Rivera's Autorretrato' (Self-Portrait) and 'Retrato de Natasha Gelman' (Portrait of Natasha Gelman). Set in the broader context of the Mexican modernist movement, Kahlo's and Rivera's pieces are accompanied by works by such other masters as Jose Clemente Orozco, Rufino Tamayo, and Leonora Carrington. This book is being published to coincide with the exhibition Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection and Mexican Modernism from the Stanley and Pearl Goodman Collection, at the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale. Exhibition: Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale, USA (26.2.-31.5.2015)
Diego Rivera : his art and his passions by Gerry Souter( Book )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Diego Rivera is celebrated by Gerry Souter as a virtuoso Mexican muralist, where he could express at once his legend and myths, his technical talent, his intense story-telling focus and self-indulgent ideological convictions. His easel paintings and drawings also constitute a large body of both his early and late work and are represented in the book. Gerry Souter, the author of Frida Kahlo, overcomes his huge admiration for Diego Rivera to give the artist a human dimension, found in his political choices, his love affairs and his belief that this truth was Mexico, the language of his thoughts, the blood in his veins, the azure sky above his resting place."--Publisher description
