Anahuacalli : Museo Diego Rivera (Spanish, English, French, German)
Anahuacalli Museo Diego Rivera - Spanish, English, French, German Author:Artes de Mexico Artes de Mexico — Numero 64/65, 1960 — Besides being a lasting monument to his own architectural talent, Diego Rivera's Anahuacalli Museum is an expression of love for the Mexican people, a structure that seems to rise intrinsically out of the Xitle lava bed from which it is built. Rivera, who invested a large part of the profits made by painting ... more »into the collection of pre-Columbian art, here has given shape to the same basic civic and human qualities that were expressed so faithfully in all his mural painting.
This volume shows a sampling of Rivera's extensive collection of some 59,400 pieces that make up the total collection, of which the painter himself chose some 2,00 to exhibit in the Anahuacalli Museum, located in Coyoacan in the south of Mexico City.
The items in the collection are listed in a non-detailed index identifying them and the culture which produced them, but without dates, dimensions, or specific localities where they originated or were found. Illustrated with black and white photographs.« less
