Bertram D. Wolfe (1896-1977) co-authored two books with Rivera, Portrait of Mexico and Portrait of America. He is also the author of Three Who Made a Revolution.
Above all, [Wolfe] presents the life—the life of a Renaissance Man who mastered his time and was then mastered by it—in all of its superb color, movement, humor and pathos, with a gusto and epic sweep matching its subject.
— New Leader
The single account of his fabulous life and politics....Rivera's lives and loves, well documented here, are sensational enough to hold the interest of readers not particularly interested in painting.
— The New York Times Book Review
[A] very detailed but always readable and forthright account....The story is a magnificent one, and Mr. Wolfe tells it well. His book [has] an affection and generosity of spirit that is rare in critical literature.
— Hilton Kramer; The Nation
