Bellevue Hospital: Horn Mural – New York NY

Description

In the late 1930s, Axel Horn and an assistant, George Brodsky, who was a veteran of the Lincoln Battalion, completed work on the mural entitled “Industrial Landscape” for the first floor waiting room in the Psychiatric Building of Bellevue Hospital. Horn and Brodsky were two out of more than a dozen artists commissioned by the Federal Art Project arm of the Works Progress Administration (WPA/FAP) to paint a series of murals for the Psychiatric Building at Bellevue Hospital.

Susan Teller Gallery explains that “[f]rom 1936 to 1940 Horn worked on the Federal Arts Project. He made murals for the Seaview and Bellevue Hospitals, the Welfare Island Nurses Home, NYC, and for the Whitehall (NY) and Yellow Springs (Ohio) Post Offices.”

The Living New Deal needs further information to determine the current status of “Industrial Landscape” painted for Bellevue Hospital.
