Diego Rivera was commissioned by the Detroit Institute of Arts, with funds from Edsel Ford (the son of automaker Henry Ford), to paint the walls of the institute's garden court. Rivera studied workers at the Ford plant in nearby Dearborn to produce the murals, twenty-seven panels that Rivera completed in eleven months, April 1932—March 1933. The massive work is considered the finest example of the Mexican muralist's work in the United States and Rivera himself thought the Detroit murals to be his most successful work.
On April 23, 2014, the Detroit Industry Murals were given National Historic Landmark Status.
