Through more than 100 paintings and prints as well as dozens of sculptural antiquities, Picasso and Rivera: Conversations Across Time explores how both artists mined their respective ancient cultures. Specifically, it follows the artists into and after World War I, when Picasso began to incorporate Greco-Roman mythology into his painted Iberian narratives and Rivera turned to muralism and Aztec imagery as a means of establishing Mexican unity and identity.
