River Rouge Nocturne #2, oil on linen panel, 5"x7"
This is the Ford River Rouge Plant. Construction began in 1917, and was completed in 1928. At that time it was the largest integrated factory in the world. It is a famous complex. Charles Sheeler photographed and painted the complex in the 20's and 30's, and Diego Rivera depicted it in the murals in the Detroit Institute of Arts, the complex has been documented in photos most recently by the photographer Michelle Andonain.

Love this piece. Tromping through history you are...hey, going to the Dallas vs Detroit hockey game this afternoon...shall cheer both teams. :)

Real nice nocture Stephen. That bit of orange -peach color in the smoke is just the right compliment for the scene.
You do a nice job with your blog. I visit a lot, but have not commented before.

I love it: it's dark and brooding, and the contrast between the billowing smoke and solid stacks is just gorgeous.
