Diego Rivera: His World and Ours

Diego Rivera: His World and Ours - Duncan Tonatiuh On the heels of just having received a Pura Belpre (Illustrator) Award Honor for his first book, Dear Primo, Duncan Tonatiuh gives us Diego Rivera: His World and Ours. A straightforward picture book artist biography, this book also presupposes what Diego Rivera might have painted as murals from observing our modern day technology-filled world. An excellent description of the motivations behind the mural paintings throughout Mexico, Rivera's studies in Europe, and how the murals representations of Mexico's history might be interpreted in today's culture.
