Hamill (a political journalist, author, and editor) narrates the life and explores the art of Diego Rivera, the prodigiously productive artist, polemicist and political activist, Mexican nationalist, and lover of many women. Acknowledging the cost of Rivera's didactic communism, he provides historical insights and focuses on what is enduring in the artist's work. The 107 illustrations (including 59 in color) show the full range of his art (murals, paintings, drawings, and illustrations) as well as documentary photographs
