The Bus by Frida Kahlo, 1929

“The Bus” was a depiction of the bus accident that injured the artist Frida Kahlo in 1925.  A housewife, a plumber, an Indian mother, a businessman and a young girl are seen riding together on one side of the bus.  This painting calls to mind the interesting characters one sees during the daily commute. Certainly, his collection of people is preferable to “Unwashed Since 2002 Guy” and “Mr. Talks Loud on Phone” that I seem to end up sitting next to!

Going to Work

“Going to Work”, painted by L.S. Lowry in 1949, shows a swarm of workers walking to their workplace.  Industrial scenes like this one are common in Lowry's work.  This painting provides an interesting look at the scenery just before the start of our working day…and perhaps makes the office a little more appealing on contrast!
