A poetic, easy-to-read account of the childhood and early adulthood of Mexican muralist Diego Rivera is presented in a bilingual texts (English/Spanish). Rivera is characterized as a visionary and dreamer who liked to draw the colors, people and events he witnessed in his native land. The brief text of the 9 1/4" x 7 1/4" volume is accompanied throughout by bordered 3" x 3 1/2" exquisitely stylized paintings which dramatically lead up to a wordless double-page spread of Rivera at work on a mural, effectively communicating the magnitude of Rivera's art form. (Ages 5-9)
