On March 13, 1933, Mexican artist Diego Rivera completed “Detroit Industry”, which Rivera considered to be his greatest mural in the US. Rivera, a member of the Mexican Communist Party, was a great admirer of the city of Detroit and its industrial strength. The Detroit Institute of Arts commissioned Rivera to paint the series of three murals, which took over a year to finish. Among his other accomplishments, Rivera was married to the famous Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo.
