About This Book
Diego Rivera was a famous Mexican mural painter. He studied in Europe, but developed his own distinctive style. He believed that his paintings should be seen by everyone, not just those people who could afford to purchase art work. Many of his paintings make statements about revolutionary ideas.
These books are without a doubt the definitive — and most entertaining — biographies of artists for young readers. Author/artist Mike Venezia provides hilarious, cartoon-style illustrations to complement his easy-to-read text and full-color reproductions of the masters' artwork. Now printed in a dozen different languages worldwide, and with more than two million copies of the English editions sold, these books have helped countless children around the world "get to know" the world's greatest artists!
