Larry Rivers (American, 1923–2002) was an American artist, musician, filmmaker and actor. He began his career as a professional Jazz Saxophonist and studied music theory at Juilliard. Influenced by George Braque and Cubism, Rivers began painting and enrolled in Hans Hoffmann's School of Painting. In 1953, Rivers painted his seminal work, 'Washington Crossing the Delaware', which presented a departure from Abstract Expressionism and his movement towards Pop art. Rivers resided and maintained studios in New York City, Southampton, New York, and Zihuatanejo, Mexico.
