Summary
During his lifetime, Larry Rivers was a prominent figurative artist, noted for bridging the gap between abstract expressionism and pop art. Having made a major impact on the art scene during New York's post-war cultural explosion, Rivers is also largely celebrated for bringing history back into contemporary painting--from his own famous version of 'Washington Crossing the Delaware' to the pictorial story of the Jews in 'The History of Matzoh,' and the somber set of large portraits of Primo Levi. His paintings hang in the Metropolitan Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum, the Corcoran Museum, the National Gallery, the Guggenheim Museum, museums abroad, and private collections. In the five decades that Rivers was a prominent artist and sometimes jazz musician, he was known for his outspokenness, irreverence, wit, and controversial character. Combining candid interviews and stunning imagery, this dazzling documentary explores his influence. Interviewed in the film are Rivers's dealer Pierre Levai, art historian and critic Sam Hunter, author Arnold Weinstein, his ex-wife Clarice, his children, and Rivers himself
