Post Office (former) Frescos – Beverly Hills CA

Description

“Artist Charles Kassler was commissioned to decorate the walls of the interior Grand Hall with fresco murals depicting the creation of the mail service and views of modern life during the Depression. These murals are one of only two fresco murals in California and stand today as an elegant representation of the citizens of another era.”

The murals include “Post Rider” and “Air Mail”, two end lunettes funded by the Section of Fine Arts, and “Construction – PWA”, six lunettes funded by TRAP.
