Description

Mexican muralist Diego Rivera (1886–1957) 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 thought the Detroit murals to be his most successful work. 

Boxed set of blank notecards includes 20 blank cards (5 each of 4 designs) with envelopes depicting details from the Detroit Industry murals at the Detroit Institute of Arts. 

Card Dimensions: 5 x 7 inches

    My favorite mural in all the world; it grabs you as you walk in and takes you directly into the auto factory where you go through all of the lines. It is an early portrait of how minorities made it in Detroit and how hard they had to work just to do it.

    Perfect gift for any occasion

    The Diego Rivera Notecards of the DIA murals are a great way to celebrate the collection, the artist and the DIA. The quality is good, the reproductions excellent. My only disappointment was seeing that the cards were printed in Korea. I think there must be some printing places in metro Detroit that could do the quality work. I would have paid more gladly for a logo "Imported from Detroit." (even though that is Chrysler's buy line....

    Check out this art bargain

    Note cards of American art, particularly mural art, are becoming harder and harder to find. DIA offers some of the best: cards of the Rivera murals of automobile production. At half the price of an ordinary Hallmark card, a DIA card carries a message before you even add a note!
