Diego Rivera

Diego Rivera’s famous mural: “Gloriosa Victoria”, depicting the Dulles brothers, the American ambassador Peurifoy, and Eisenhower’s face on a bomb greeting Castillo Armas. The archbishop of Guatemala blesses their unholy coup while the men stand over the corpses of Guatemalans.

Here is a nice lecture by Stephen Kinzer at Google, that explains the significance of this painting and the context in which it was painted.

The lecture also helps understand current world events in the light of U. S. foreign policy of the 50’s
