During the Great Depression, a series of commissions allowed Mexican muralist Diego Rivera to leave his mark on the walls of the United States. William Valentiner, the director of the Detroit Institute of Arts, commissioned him to paint the walls of the museum's classical Garden Court. Edsel Ford, the president of the Ford Motor Company, agreed to fund the project and became a great champion of the artist.
This book of postcards examines the famous murals in 30 details, allowing you to study the full scope of this extraordinary, mammoth work of art.
