The second non-fiction text I read, this book really goes in-depth with Diego Rivera's life. It is very text heavy, which could be a problem, but if you have an older student utilize it as an instructional or research text, it should be alright. It is laid out beautifully, despite the text heaviness, and you're really given a sense of who Diego was and what he represents to the Mexican people, and the art world as a whole. The message isn't explicit but it is hinted at that Diego's populist feelings, and his art, are a great source of pride, and that it would be wise for all of us to acknowledge his legacy. ( )
