Reviews - What do customers think about Diego Rivera, 1886-1957: A Revolutionary Spirit in Modern Art (Taschen Basic Art)?

Solid Overview  Jun 1, 2008
This concise book is a solid introduction to Diego Rivera. The text is a concise biography concentrating on his artistic career. There are abundant images showing his work across the whole length of his long and productive career. The images concentrate on his many important murals but there is a good selection of his other work. An important point, though it really emerges implicitly, is the eclectic nature of Rivera's influences. Rivera had rigorous classical training as a young man, had a modernist-cubist phase, was apparently influenced by Italian Renaissance fresco painting, and had a tremendous interest in Pre-Columbian art. I would have liked to read some more formal art criticism. For example, there are several comments on the influence of Renaissance fresco painting but we never see any specific examples. Image reproduction quality is good but the book is relatively small, which makes the murals look 'busy.' Still, as a short introduction, this is a very good effort.
