Rivera's work is masterful! I am a big fan of that Art Deco style of painting, but Rivera's work seems to be a step above the rest. Thanks for posting!

For all the art freaks, here's something about Rivera's mural in San Francisco :

The Diego Rivera Mural at SFAI
"The Making of a Fresco Showing the Building of a City ("Making a Fresco")", (1931) is one of four murals in the Bay Area painted by Mexican artist Diego Rivera (1886-1957).

The entire post is here:

Even if you're not into art, stopping by the DIA to see the Detroit Industry is a must for any car person visiting Detroit. I has the opportunity to visit the DIA back in 2006. Rivera's fresco is truly breath-taking to see in person and it's sheer size is overwhelming, the 360-degree view gives you some idea but nothing can compare to standing in the inner court and viewing it in person.

True enough, but then I'm not into chicks with uni-brows either, lol

I think the problem I have, is his gross use of proportion. I seem to enjoy work with more realistic symmetry.

For example: The work of Carlo Ciampaglia. The work he did at the Centennial building in Dallas, TX is more my stlye. I like the greek or Roman influence that I see in his art.

¡Arte por "el arte"!

Just kidding.
I really do like it. I've never seen these Ford renderings before.
Very cool.

Wow, stunning. Very cool post, thanks Jay. The 360 view is awesome!

edit: damn, the 360 view really is awesome. Check out the zoom feature. I'm not sure what camera they used, but it has one hell of high resolution. You can really zoom into any part of the room in some serious detail.

Haha...Terry, I'm not surprised. I am a fan of the "uni-brow"chick too btw. I get it, it's just not your thing, and that's cool. I can appreciate Carlo Ciampaglia's work, so I invite you to open your mind and check out a few of Diego's paintings that have a similar realistic "feel" to Ciampaglia's: (1) La Era, Diego Rivera 1904 (2) House over the Bridge, D.Rivera 1909 (3) En la Fuente de Toledo, D.Rivera,1913
I hope you enjoy them.

When I lived in Calfornia I was so impressed by a visit to the Norton Simon museum in Pasadena where Deigo's work was show cased that I have been a huge fan since. We were fortunate to have a large display in Omaha last year at our fabulous Joyslyn Museum of Art. I went four times and came away thrilled each time. HIs lady companion Frida Caldo is another inspiration of art for me, these people were pioneers in progressive thinking and are most interesting. Thank you for this wonderful tribute post. ~sololobo~

One of my favorite pieces of art in the whole world. I go every time I'm in Detroit. even when I've been in a rush, I'll pay the DIA admission just to stand in that one room for half an hour and take it all in.

I never liked that Fat F**K! I hated what he did to Frida Khalo, and a friend has a couple of original Diego Riveras paintings, and Frida Khalo.. Now I guess I'll like him. Damn it!....

I marvel everytime I see it. I now have an 8x11 framed print of it above my computer. Being a Ford employee for 42 years and counting, Diego's depiction of the machinery is surreal and captures the mightiness of the furnaces, presses, and the conveyor systems. IIRC, the Rouge had over 100,000 employees at one time. One story is told when Henry Ford was showing Walter Reuther how a new tranfer system was installed between presses eliminating jobs. Henry showed Walter a finished fender gloating about the new technology. Walter replied (paraphrasing here), "looks nice Mr. Ford, now see if that transfer system will buy it on their new car". I'm glad it survived the naysayers and can truly consume a day at the DIA, Rod.
