|Diego Rivera painting his Rockefeller Center mural in 1933|
On April 24th, the New York World-Telegram published an article about the mural
titled "Rivera Paints Scenes of Communist/Activity and John D. Jr. Foots Bill." Rivera
was, in fact, a Communist, and on May 9, 1933, he was forced to leave the scaffold and the
mural was covered. The wall was later resurfaced, permanently covering the mural.
