Synopsis

Diego Rivera His World and Ours by Duncan Tonatiuh

A charming book that conveys just enough information about the artist Diego Rivera (1886-1957) to introduce him and his work to a young reader. It tells the story of Diego as a young, mischievous boy who demonstrated a clear passion for art even as a child, and then went on to become one of the most famous painters in the world. Duncan connects Diego's work to our contemporary world by asking and showing what Diego might have painted today. What great events would his murals depict? How would he depict the lives of common people? How would his paintings reflect today's culture? The book includes an author's note and an example of Diego Rivera's actual artwork. It also includes where in North America and the UK you can see Diego's work.
