Coit Tower Part Two - Interior Views; So Beautiful!

Executed under the Public Works of Art Project a Federal New Deal employment project,

the Coit Tower Murals have always been a little controversial

because of the "Leftist" associations claimed both by the artists who made them,

and the Lefty tendencies assigned to them by others.

The quality of the work is uneven, some of it executed by people who were students at the time.

But, I found these last two paintings to be exceedingly beautiful in the colorations and their simplicity.

What do you think?


  1. Merci pour cette découverte, j'aime beaucoup comme toi les personnages et j'ai découvert aujourd'hui Lillie Hitckock Coit que je ne connaissais pas...!

  2. I do like these last two, especially the figure in the overalls.

  3. would just love to see those for real.
