EXAMPLES OF RECENT MURAL DECORATION

The following six illustrations are selected from a set of sixteen mural paintings executed by Lawrence C. Earle, Montclair, New Jersey, for the Chicago National Bank Building, Chicago. They are painted on canvas, sixteen feet long by nine feet high, and are set in segmental frames over great panels of Pavanazzo marble, the paintings being secured by a small gilt molding. The room is one hundred and thirty-five feet long, eighty feet wide, and forty-four feet high, and is sumptuous in its appointments in every particular. Mr. Earle's paintings are the most interesting feature of the decoration, though decidedly not the most costly. Symbolism, which so often finds its way into mural paintings, has been eschewed, and the canvases instead present scenes in the history of the city in which the building is located.
