Description

The photograph depicts an unidentified event with Erwin Piscator (second from the left, facing the camera), Alexandre Koyre (third from left in the front), and Henri Gregoire (possibly first from right in the front) in the Orozco Room. Probably Mary Urban can be seen sitting on Piscator's left, and Georges Gurvitch on her left. Orozco painted a series of murals in 1930 to cover each wall of the dining room on the 5rd floor of the new building of The New School that was designed by Joseph Urban, and open to the public in 1931. The murals that are the only remaining examples of a Mexican muralist in New York, were restored in the 1980s. Photographer: Conrad Eiger from Black Star
