Uno de los trabajos más reconocidos de #JeanPaulRiopelle se titula Homenaje a Rosa Luxemburgo. Esta se comenzó a producir en el año 1992 poco tiempo después de que Riopelle se entera de la muerte de su amigo, el pintor estadounidense, Joan Mitchell.
Este trabajo es una secuencia de 30 pinturas que forman un gran mural, que cuenta con gran cantidad de color aplicado por medio del aerosol. En ellas se encuentran plasmadas las siluetas de diversos animales rodeadas de objetos cotidianos. .

Time well spent with the TD Finance, Indigenous Student’s Mentorship Program. Had the opportunity to meet some young people that are going to change the world and we all got a tour of the iconic 54th floor of the TD Tower. Did you you that for many years, it was the tallest building in Toronto? They have an original Emily Carr painting and a huge Jean-Paul Riopelle. Attention to detail was amazing but I was aghast to find out that although this was the executive floor for many years, there was no women’s washroom built there until.....1998!!!! 😧#td54thfloor#indigenousstudentsmentoring#emilycarr#jeanpaulriopelle#nowomenswashroom#tdindigenouscircle#barcelonachairs
