The railroads became gateways to new countries and for new opportunity. Social movements across #LatinAmerica targeted the metropolis by encouraging large municipal projects like bridges and railways that fostered the movement of people and goods. While these cities began to reconsider their identity when symbols of colonial power were being removed, immigration was on the rise in #California - #LosAngeles exploded by the 1930s reaching a population of over 1 million. Migrant laborers like #MartinRamirez would’ve left #Mexico to seek work - railroads, tunnels and roads are prolific elements in his drawings | #TheMetropolisinLatinAmerica#PSTLALA#GettyResearchInstitute#gettycenter#icala#PSTinstaswap#MuseumInstaSwap (pictured) ‘Raymond Special on the Metlac Bridge’, Mexico City-Veracruz, ca. 1897 - Charles Betts Waite (1861–1927).

Saw this painting (entitled 'Head of a Woman', by flemish artist Michael Sweerts) at the Getty Center recently. It dates from 1654, and the biographic information on the painting suggests that the model was a peasant woman in Rome.
I was really taken by the detail in the painting? It was like looking at a photograph. Isn't it gorgeous? •○
