Larry Rivers was a true American renaissance man – an accomplished Jazz musician, a painter, sculptor, poet, actor, television personality, filmmaker, author and teacher. He was one of the first artists to merge non-objective, non-narrative art with narrative and objective abstraction, and for that reason he is considered by many scholars to be the key founding father of Pop Art.
