Bellevue Hospital: Tait Mural – New York NY

Description

In the mid 1930s, Agnes Tait completed work on the mural entitled “Summer Holiday” for the women’s recreation room in the Psychiatric Building of Bellevue Hospital. Tait was one of over 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.

We learn from the brief survey of Tait’s career on her webpage that she “…produced some of her best-known works during the Depression era including the frequently reproduced painting Skating in Central Park, a set of murals for Belleview Hospital in New York, and a series of lithographic projects.” All of these projects were funded by New Deal Programs.

The Living New Deal needs further information to determine the current status of the mural Tait painted for Bellevue Hospital.
