This is believed to be a one-of-a kind piece.
One of Rivera's last works, the 1952 painting "Nightmare of War, Dream of Peace," disappeared more than 50 years ago, an incredible feat since the mural is 40 feet long by 10 feet high.The Mexican government had asked Rivera to produce a work to represent Mexico at a global exhibition, a request Rivera accepted, saying he would paint a mural "dedicated to peace." His final product depicts "a benevolent Mao and Stalin" attempting to reach a peace agreement with "a sour-looking Uncle Sam" flanked by representatives from England and France. The government refused to exhibit the work due to its anti-American theme. The work is rumored to have been given to Mao by Rivera in the 1950s and then to have been destroyed by Mao, though other rumors place it in Moscow or Poland.
