Diego Rivera (1886-1957) is an important figure on the art historical scene . With firm political principles and a turbulent love story, he was at the same time husband and champion of Frida Kahlo, defender and enemy of Stalin's Soviet Union, and liberator and traitor of Leon Trotsky.

Brightly colored, graphic, and often monumental, Rivera's paintings carry the same passionate and political charge as the author's personal biography . Fusing European influences, such as Cubism, with a socialist ideology and an exaltation of the popular and indigenous legacy of Mexico, he created a new iconography for the history of art and for his country. He became one of the most important figures in the Mexican mural movement, gaining international recognition for his mural paintings on public buildings in which he presented a utopian yet accessible vision of a post-revolutionary Mexico. In 1931, Rivera was the protagonist of the second monographic exhibition in MoMA's history.

This book studies the unique combination of influences and ideologies that makes Rivera a unique and universal painter , linked to the especially turbulent history of Mexico at the beginning of the 20th century, and concerned, in turn, with issues such as revolution and inequality. of classes, which are still hot today.
