American Progress
Tuesday 27 December 2011

José María Sert. 30 Rockefeller Plaza.

"Sert was commissioned to paint this mural after the Rockefellers fired Diego Rivera, who offended them by making Lenin a principal figure on his original fresco. Sert's mural, the focal point of the lobby, depicts the development of America through the unity of brain and brawn. The three Graces symbolize man's intellectual activity, while Titans and men working represent men of action." (www.rockefellercenter.com)
