MoMA dusts off the series of "portable" murals that the Mexican maestro created in a specially set up New York City studio for his 1931 solo show at the Modern (the second such honor bestowed onto a living artist, after Henri Matisse). The subjects include heroes of the Mexican Revolution, as well as members of Gotham's own working class; this is the first time these pieces have seen the light of day in 80 years.
