Berrenceau, "Progress of Man"
Belle Baranceanu was painted two oil on canvas murals at Balboa Park in 1935, paid for with federal funding: “Progress of Man” and “Education and Culture”. She rushed to complete the later for the 1935-1936 California Pacific International Exposition and would later claim that she could not stand to look at it.
These are the only two of her murals to survive in their original location.
