Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
In the guise of the respective artist, the author of these and others in the "A Weekend with..." series tell young readers about themselves and their work. The first-person enthusiasm and air of congeniality and the plentiful illustrations makes these volumes as captivating as they are enlightening. Youngsters can also "spend" weekends with Van Gogh, Degas, da Vinci, Picasso, Renoir, Rembrandt, Rousseau, Velazquez, and Winslow Homer.
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The premise in this series is an informal visit with a famous artist. In this beautiful and informative book, Rivera talks in the first person and tells the reader of his life, love of Mexico, and his desire to create art for the people. The gorgeous reproductions, most of which are in color, occupy full pages. The captions provide excellent information about Rivera's work, while lists at the end of the book give details about titles, dimensions, and locations of his works as well as their chronology. A great way to learn about the world's great artists.
School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-Braun assumes Rivera's voice to trace the artist's adult life and focus on his major works. Included are some pieces of technical information on mural production, bits of Mexican history (the dominant subject of his murals), and even a patronizing line or two about his wife, Frida Kahlo. The telling is rather flat, although Rivera's egocentric view of the world is made clear by such comments as, ``After completing that project I became the leading painter in the land.'' But the juices of his personality are drained; the fire that fueled his tempestuous life is missing. A single, matter-of-fact sentence about the headline-producing ``controversy'' involving his Rockefeller Center mural is indicative of the author's unwillingness to deal with Rivera's strong political persona and his relationship with the Communist party. Anne Neimark's Diego Rivera (HarperCollins, 1992) has a much more comprehensive text, but inadequate illustrations. The many reproductions here are the book's strength; they are clearly printed and demonstrate the range of his murals as well as some line illustrations he did for books. Captions supply additional information.-Kenneth Marantz, Art Education Department, Ohio State University, Columbus
