We enjoy your website. We are the estate of Louis Schanker. (1903-1981) He was an artist and supervisor in the NYC-WPA.
Schanker did the mural at the WNYC studios on the 25th floor of the Municipal building (still there); a mural in the Health and Sciences building of the World’s Fair and the Neponsit Children’s Hospital in Queens. See: http://www.louisschanker.info
We have several sketches and information on Schanker, his works and the time period which we have exhibited.
Please let us know if there is any way we might be of assistance in your mission.
