Detail Diego Rivera Mural, DIA



Here's a detail from the Diego Rivera Mural at the DIA. We are reading Barbara Kingsolver's Lacuna, so we really enjoyed re-examining all the Diego Rivera stuff. If you click here, you can see soem other Diego Rivera/DIA posts from previous visits. One had a picture almost exactly like this one--I didn't realize I'd taken nearly an identical picture--twice! But this one is new from Avedon/WPA visit.

Hi Mary,

A beautiful painting. Very expressive I think. The painting tells a good story about the man portrayed.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Best regards
Asta

Nice photo. I look forward to a visit to the DIA over the holidays. We went last year to view the Normal Rockwell collection.

Thanks you Asta and Tony! :-D

Lots to see at the DIA!

As you probably can imagine, I'm more at ease with your post of yesterday. I'm not a fan of Mr. Rivera...

That's only a portion of the mural...do you have a wide-angle lens to get the whole thing in?

Amazing!

The detail is wonderful in this piece.

I do have some pictures of the whole mural--yes, I do have a wide angle lens.

I hope I did not offend you with this, VP! :-(

I'd be interested to hear your views.

We are reading a book, The Lacuna, about him, but I am not an expert on the subject.
