Diego Rivera’s Man at the Crossroads was originally commissioned for New York’s Rockefeller Center. The Rockefellers had the original destroyed because they thought it had anti-capitalist themes after Rivera included a portrait of Vladimir Lenin in the work. Rivera re-created it at The Palace of Fine Arts in 1934. Ironically, its popularity makes it a big economic booster for Mexico today!
