Synopsis: Rebel with a cause: A revolutionary spirit in modern art   Diego Rivera (1886–1957) is a loud presence on the art historical stage. With devout political principles and a turbulent romantic history, he was at once husband and paladin of Frida Kahlo, advocate and adversary of Stalin’s Soviet Union, and liberator and traitor of Leon Trotsky.

Vibrant, graphic, and often monumental, Rivera’s paintings carry the same live political and passionate charge as his personal biography. Fusing European influences such as Cubism with a socialist ideology and an exaltation of Mexico’s indigenous and popular heritage, he created a new iconography for art history and for his country. He became one of the most important figures in the Mexican mural movement and won international acclaim for his public wall paintings, in which he presented a utopian yet accessible vision of a post-revolutionary Mexico. In 1931, Rivera was the subject of MoMA’s second ever monographic exhibition.

This book explores the unique blend of influence and ideology which secure Rivera’s place as both a unique and a universal painter, bound to the particular turbulent experience of early 20th century Mexico, and yet preoccupied with subjects such as revolution and class inequity which continue to speak to us today.   About the Series:
Each book in TASCHEN’s Basic Art series features:

  • a detailed chronological summary of the life and oeuvre of the artist, covering his or her cultural and historical importance
  • a concise biography
  • approximately 100 illustrations with explanatory captions

About the Author: Andrea Kettenmann (born in 1959) studied art history in Gießen, Göttingen and Heidelberg before joining the art history department of the University of Hamburg. In 1986 she visited Mexico on a fellowship, and now lives there, working as a freelance art historian. She has now worked on a number of exhibitions and catalogues, including the catalogue for the retrospective on Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo’s husband, in Detroit.

Book Description Taschen GmbH. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Rivera, Andrea Kettenmann, It was as a revolutionary and troublemaker that Picasso, Dali and Andre Breton described the husband of Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, but he was also responsible for creating a public art that was both highly advanced and profoundly accessible. From 1910 Rivera lived in Europe where he absorbed the influence of Cubism. After the Mexican revolution, however, he returned to his homeland and harnessed the lessons of the European avant-garde to the needs of the Mexican people. His own murals, and those of the Mexican Muralists who followed his example, presented a utopian vision of a post-revolutionary Mexico. Rivera's historical paintings expressed his interpretation of the revolution and its ideals, in a style that showed him returning to the pre-Columbian roots of Mexican culture, re-inventing a colourfully realistic visual idiom that could appeal directly to a largely illiterate people. This is the first study which, independently of the exhibition circuit, coherently presents the work of this extraordinary artist. Bookseller Inventory # B9783836504133

Book Description Taschen Verlag Dez 1899, 1899. Buch. Book Condition: Neu. Neuware - Viva Rivera! Marx, Mexiko und die Moderne Diego Rivera (1886-1957) ist eine lebenspralle, lautstarke Erscheinung auf der kunsthistorischen Bühne. Sein Leben war geprägt von politischem Kampf und turbulenten Liebschaften, er war Ehemann und Förderer von Frida Kahlo, Befürworter und Gegner von Stalins Sowjetunion sowie Befreier und Verräter für Leo Trotzki. Riveras Gemälde - lebendig, explizit und oft monumental - verströmen dieselbe politische und persönliche Passion wie seine Biografie. Durch die Fusion von europäischen Einflüssen wie dem Kubismus, einer sozialistischen Ideologie und mexikanischer Folklore schuf er für sein Land eine völlig neue, in der Kunstgeschichte einzigartige Bildsprache. Er wurde zu einem der wichtigsten Vertreter des mexikanischen Muralismo und erhielt internationale Anerkennung für seine öffentlichen Wandmalereien, in denen er eine utopische, aber zugängliche Vision von einem postrevolutionären Mexiko präsentierte. 1931 galt die insgesamt erst zweite monografische Ausstellung des MoMA seinem Werk. Dieses Buch erkundet die eigenwillige Mischung aus stilistischen und ideologischen Einflüssen, die Rivera so einzigartig machte. Der zugleich universelle und doch so stark von seiner Zeit und seinem Land - dem turbulenten Mexiko des frühen 20. Jahrhunderts - geprägte Maler setzte sich mit Themen wie Revolution und sozialer Ungerechtigkeit auseinander, die uns auch heute noch ansprechen. 96 pp. Englisch.
