Frozen Assets1931-1932 by Diego Rivera
In Frozen Assets, Rivera coupled his appreciation for New York’s distinctive vertical architecture with a potent critique of the city's economic inequities. The panel’s upper register features a drama.... Rivera’s jarring vision of the city—in which the masses trudge to work, the homeless are warehoused, and the wealthy squirrel away their money—struck a chord in 1932, in the midst of the Great Depression. http://www.moma.org/interactives/exhibitions/2011/rivera/content/mural/frozen/detail.php
