Diego Rivera (1886–1957) is a loud presence on the art historical stage. With devout political principles and a turbulent romantic history, he was at once husband of Frida Kahlo, advocate and enemy of Stalin’s Soviet Union, and liberator and traitor of Leon Trotsky.
This book explores the blend of influence and ideology which secure Rivera’s place as both a unique and universal painter, bound to the particular turbulent experience of early 20th century Mexico, and yet preoccupied with subjects such as revolution and class inequity, which continue to speak to us today.
