The eight grand murals adorning the walls of the Herbst Theatre in San Francisco were painted by Frank Brangwyn as commissioned works for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition of 1915.
In 1924 the House of Lords in London commissioned Frank Brangwyn to produce panels for the Royal Gallery in the Palace of Westminster. Five were completed and when displayed in the Royal Gallery were the subject of public controversy and criticism. They were turned down as being too colourful and lively, and now have a home in Swansea, in the Brangwyn Hall.
The image on the left is in San Francisco and, on the right, in Swansea.
Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends!
