Lester Bentley MuralsOriginally painted for what was then the De Pere WI post office.
These three murals by Lester W. Bentley were painted for the former De Pere, Wisconsin post office in 1942. They are now hanging in the Neville Public Museum in Green Bay WI. The murals were painted under the auspices of the Treasury Section of Fine Arts. They are titled “The Red Pieta,” “Nicholas Perrot,” and “Give Us This Day.”
