Detroit Institute of Arts to examine rare Diego Rivera drawings that inspired ‘Detroit Industry’

You can read all about their plans here. I’m surprised these studies haven’t been digitally photographed before though. They’ll make a great resource. From the images in the slideshow it looks like the studies were used for the figures of the “elements” along the top register.
