Diego Riveria The Detroit Industry Murals (Hardcover) by Linda Downs (Author)

Book Description
A beautifully illustrated in-depth study of the most important North American work by the best-known Mexican muralist, Diego Rivera. Early in the Depression, Diego Rivera was commissioned by Edsel Ford to create a series of murals in the gallery of the Detroit Institute of Arts, giant frescos whose theme would be America's industrial might. This volume studies the astonishing results and gives us a remarkably close look at Diego and his wife, Frida Kahlo. Rivera's Detroit Industry murals are one of this country's greatest treasures. In addition to providing full coverage and analysis of the murals, this volume includes chapters on the murals' planning and antecedents, Rivera's working methods (which can be read as a primer on frescos), Diego and Frida's lives for their nine months in Detroit, and the public's dramatic response to the strong socialist/communist themes in the works.


IngramBeautifully illustrated, this in-depth study of the most important North American work by Mexican muralist, Diego Rivera includes reproductions of some of the world's greatest treasures, commissioned by Edsel Ford in the 1930s. 190 illustrations, 40 in color. 2 color triple fold-outs.

Discarded Carry-On Liquids Are a Hit at Homeless Shelters
Every day, tons of lotions, shampoo and perfumes are collected at airports around Germany. The regulations restricting liquids in hand luggage to under 100 ml have been in effect for a year now. Still, airline passengers leaving Germany end up throwing away their water bottles and even expensive souvenirs at the gate. But what happens to all of the discarded liquids?
