Federal Building and U. S. Courthouse: Bisttram Murals – Albuquerque NM

Description

“Justice Tempered with Mercy (Uphold the Right, Prevent the Wrong)” by Emil Bisttram was originally installed in the courthouse at Roswell, NM. It was painted with Treasury Relief Art Project funds in 1936 and moved to its present location in 1983.

“Cooperation” and “Strife” are two smaller (3′ x 3′) murals that flank “Justice Tempered With Mercy” to form a triptych.
