Resumen del Libro
The exhibition catalogue of portrait paintings by Diego Rivera is an important addition to the understanding of this great 20th century master. The museum holds the worlds largest collection of his easel paintings. Offered here is a large collection of works that belong to private and museum collections of portraits of those who were most important to Rivera in one way or another: some of them patrons of the arts, models or simply people who had won his admiration. The emphasis is on those works from his formative years, his time at the San Carlos Academy, his friends produced during his stay in Europe that encompass styles ranging from figurative art through symbolism, neo-impressionism and cubism.
