Abstract:

"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.
