A Dream of a Sunday Afternoon (detail).

Name: A Dream of a Sunday Afternoon (detail).
Artist: Diego Rivera
Location: Alameda Park, Mexico City.
Year: 1947

The Alameda is a large park in Mexico City that has a long history dating back to the era when it served as an Aztec marketplace. Diego Rivera saw this mural as the narration of a dreamlike walk on the Alameda, something he liked doing as a child. He synthesized Mexican history, street life and aspects of Mexican society. Diego himself makes an appearance. He looks youthful and happy surrounded by beautiful ladies. However, Death is not far away to his left.
