I saw Rivera's murals when I was in Mexico City, but it took me another three decades to catch up to his murals in Detroit. 

I must have matured, because these were...spectacular, and I don't remember being this moved by the work in Mexico. Also, it's interesting to me that while Rivera is clearly left-leaning, that he could still get a commission from American industrialists. The panels of the workers making a gas bomb over the panel of human cells being affected by gas was...chilling.
