Diego in Detail

The most comprehensive study of Rivera’s work ever realized

A veritable folk hero in Latin America and Mexico’s most important artist—along with his wife, painter Frida Kahlo—Diego Rivera (1886–1957) led a passionate life devoted to art and communism. After spending the 1910s in Europe, where he surrounded himself with other artists and embraced the Cubist movement, he returned to Mexico and began to paint the large-scale murals for which he is most famous. In his murals, he addressed social and political issues relating to the working class, earning him prophetic status among the peasants of Mexico. He was invited to create works abroad, most notably in the United States, where he stirred up controversy by depicting Lenin in his mural for the Rockefeller Center in New York City (the mural was destroyed before it was finished). Rivera’s most remarkable work is his 1932 Detroit Industry, a group of 27 frescos at the Detroit Institute of Art in Michigan.

This volume features numerous large-scale details of the murals, allowing their various components and subtleties to be closely examined. In addition to the murals is a vast selection of paintings, vintage photos, documents, and drawings from public and private collections around the world, many of which the whereabouts were previously unknown to scholars and whose inclusion here is thanks to the most intense research performed on Rivera’s work since his death. Texts include an illustrated biography and essays by prominent art historians offering interpretations of each mural. One could not ask for a more comprehensive study of Rivera’s oeuvre; finally his work is the subject of the sweeping retrospective it deserves.
The authors

Diego Rivera's grandson Juan Rafael Coronel Rivera has worked as editor of the magazines Punto Cero en Literatura, El Faro revista de literatura y arte and M'hija, together with Carlos Jaurena. He founded Kahlo-Coronel Fotogalería, Mexico’s first private photo-gallery, in 1987. His collection of Mexican popular pottery is the world’s most extensive, including more than 15,000 pieces from the 16th century to the present day. He has curated more than 100 exhibitions for art galleries, museums, and biennials and has written 71 publications.

Luis-Martín Lozano is an art historian specializing in the study of the creative processes of modernist artists in Mexico and Latin America. He is the recipient of a Fulbright scholarship and has conducted extensive research on the work of both Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, as well as publishing widely on both artists. Lozano was formerly the director of the Museo de Arte Moderno in Mexico, and has been a guest curator for many art institutions in the United States, Europe, Asia, Latin America, and particularly in Mexico.

Rivera's work in your hands

Anonymous,October 29, 2021
I have visited and seen close range the mural work of Rivera and this book is as close as it gets to being there oneself! The making is meticulous, extremely complete (the entire extensive mural work is presented here, a lot of it also in close-up), the quality of the prints is remarkable, the text is most informative and sensitive. I am just delighted to have bought it. I pick it up to get lost in it very often. Thank you to the TASCHEN team for this great work.

Love it

The only way to look at Diego Rivera's murals in book form

Anonymous,October 27, 2021
A wonderful super-sized tour of his beautiful murals, paintings and preparatory sketches. This is really the only way to look at Diego Rivera's murals in book form: his murals are so large that when put into book form all details get lost in an effort to fit the mural in. In this XL format not only do you get large fold outs that capture a mural in its entirety, they also provide extreme close ups of details.

Beauty and Power

Riviera’s murals come to life in this spellbinding edition. Their beauty, detail and naive realism capture ones emotions with their honesty and make you feel the power of the artist cause. With each new image one is inspired anew by his incredible talent. Possessing this book is an awakening.
