Diego Rivera: The Complete Murals

Diego Rivera: the Complete MuralsHere in folio, the murals of Rivera present as close to the epic originals as possible. With numerous double page foldouts, detail images from within the paintings, and outline panels labeling the subjects, even a casual fan of the artist will easily become engrossed in Rivera's work. Within each chapter, essays by the authors accompany photographs of the artist and mural in progress. The artist's study sketches prove particularly interesting. The book closes with a chapter on Rivera's easel paintings and a chronology of his life and work. This volume is the English translation of the original Spanish edition by Luis-Martin Lozano, director of the Museo de Art Moderno and the artist's grandson Juan Rafael Coronel Rivera. Weighing in at 19 pounds, the book is at times difficult to handle. Book supports are available at the reference desk, to cradle this heavy tome. ND259.R5 A4 2007
