In the forty years that Larry Rivers has been a prominent artist, jazz musician and recently and author, he has been known for his outspokenness, irreverence, and wit. Here Rivers is seen as a pivotal artist of this century. In his signature style, Rivers appropriates images of historically established masterpieces and transforms them according to his personal vision. The result is a bombastic display of his superb figurative technique. Interviewed in the the film are River’s dealer Pierre Levai, art historian and critic Sam Hunter, author Arnold Weinstein, his ex-wife Clarice, his children and Rivers himself.
