Diego Rivera * David Alfaro Sigueiros * Jose Clemente Orozco by James Oles
At the forefront of the social revolution that transformed Mexico during the first half of the twentieth century were three artists whose work had a great impact on the country's culture and politics: Diego Rivera, Jose Clemente Orozco, and David Alfaro Siqueiros. This latest volume in the MoMA Artist Series looks at ten important works by these artists represented in the collection of The Museum of Modern Art. An essay by art historian James Oles accompanies each work, illuminating its significance and placing it in the context of Mexico's history and the development of modern art. This volume is an excellent introduction to the art and ideas of these influential artists.
