Man at the Crossroads - Diego Rivera's Mural at Rockefeller Center

In 1933, Diego Rivera arrived in New York to paint a mural - Man at the Crossroads - in the Rockefeller Center. A few years before, he had been the second foreign artist to have a solo exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and was at the peak of his fame. However, it was not long before conflicts and disputes arose between the multimillionaire family and the painter. Finally, in February 1934, before the work was finished, it was completely destroyed. Rivera would not paint again in the United States nor would his work be exhibited there for many years. This is the story of that mural and the minute restoration of the sketches he made in preparation for it, now kept at the Anahuacalli Museum, complemented by a great number of letters, photos, and other documents, many of them published for the first time in this fascinating book.
