Hardly a book, more like a booklet, and yet it contains so much information about the Detroit Industry Murals and the artist. We stopped in Detroit recently just to see these frescoes. At the end of the Garden Court is a desk where you can "borrow" an iPad with all kinds of information wall by wall of the mural. While that was engaging this book is simpler and so introduces the painting more clearly. Sure wish we had bought it on our way into the museum instead of the way out!

This little booklet is pretty good for what it is, which is a basic overview of Diego Rivera's Detroit Industry murals, which are one of the greatest works of Mexican / American artwork. Although there is no way that a book on this scale can get into much detail, the text is descriptive and clear and the fold out pages make it easy to relate to what you're seeing in front of you. If you're going to see the murals, this is worth taking along.

This is a nice general overview of the Rivera murals at the Detroit Institute of Arts but don't expect too much in depth discussion or analysis. The reproductions of the art are good but too small to see much detail.
