The mural, which measures 8'x 18', is oil pigments on linen canvas and has been installed on the third floor of the General Assembly Building. Based on the colors of the light spectrum representing the basic colors and creeds of all nations, the painting depicts five giants representing the five continents moving the world out of darkness into light. The technique is the artist's own pointillist style-more like the dots and dashes of a television screen or the light rays of a computer than those of Seurat. Winter chose light and color as a basic element of visual form to express an inner, more prismatic concept of nature, the hope of world youth, rather than a surface view.Secretary-General António Guterres attends the unveiling of the installation ‘Pandemic Classroom’ at United Nations Headquarters to call attention to the need for governments to prioritize the reopening of schools.
