The study features a careful formal analysis of Rivera's most important paintings. Besides addressing his rediscovery of pre-Columbian art, Craven analyzes the artist's use of narrative, iconographic programs and the fresco technique for most well-known mural cycles, which continued to draw structurally on his early avant-garde work.
