City Hospital (demolished) Mural – New York NY

Description

Artist Rosalind Bengelsdorf was “[o]ne of the youngest members of the American Abstract Artists… In 1935, she entered Hans Hofmann’s atelier as one of the many scholarship students he took on. The following year, she joined the abstract artists working on [Works Progress Administration] WPA murals under Burgoyne Diller’s enlightened leadership…

“Abstraction, which relates to a WPA mural (now destroyed) Bengelsdorf painted for the Central Nurses Home on Welfare Island [now known as Roosevelt Island], balances simple geometric forms through position and color.”    (https://americanart.si.edu)
