Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Los tres grandes: Jose Clemente Orozco, Diego Rivera, and David Alfaro Siqueiros. Now legendary, these men have emerged as the most prominent figures of the famed Mexican mural movement, which lasted from the '20s through the early '70s and was hailed as the most significant achievement in public art of the 20th century. The dramatic story of the movement is told here in a fascinating history of the artists, accompanied by over 100 spectacular color reproductions of the murals. Showcasing popular as well as lesser-known works from around the US and Mexico, this is the first high-quality paperback to do justice to a subject that will captivate every lover of Mexican art and culture, Rivera fan, and art historian, as well as anyone who appreciates a beautiful, intelligent art book.

Book News Annotation:

Follows the lives and works of the three most prominent artists of the Mexican mural movement, from their rural childhoods through the bloody years of the revolution to artistic maturity and prestigious commissions from the new state of Mexico. Text and stunning color reproductions locate the major murals in their cultural background and explore the artists' achievements within the political framework of their homeland.
