Sir Frank Brangwyn RA, 1867-1956
Oil on canvas
274.3 x 182.9 cm (108 x72 in.)
“This study for a mural scheme for the Rockefeller Center, New York, like the one for Man the Creator would appear to be the same scale as the completed mural and was probably a preparatory exercise in colouring and shading techiniques. In the final works the cross-hatching slightly more detailed. This painting will appear as reference M1108 in Libby Homer's forthcoming catalogue raisonnée.” (48).
