I love Orozco, like Siqueiros, and think Rivera is a bit overrated. The three famous Mexican muralists together in a book is wonderful. If you know nothing about them, this would be a good book to learn about them, as it has most of their famous works. Their styles were so distinct and seeing them next to each other is probably the best way to get to know them as a group and as individuals.

A great book about the Mexican legends. Big beautiful pictures with informative text. I was assigned this book to read for my Mexican Art History class and I never sold it back. It's too good. Why would I want to give it away just like that? 5 stars.

Perfect book to understand the 3 most influential artists during the Mexican Muralist movement and Mexican Revolution. You'll never look at murals the same again. I did favor Orozco the most, personally.
