Lewis Rubenstein Preparing Mural for Fogg Art Museum
Is Proof of University's Patronage of Living Artists
Proof that Harvard does patronize living artists is furnished in the person of Lewis William Rubenstein '30, winner of the Bacon Art Scholarship in 1930, who is now preparing a mural on the wall beside the large lecture room of the Fogg Art Museum.
Purporting to be a general view of the process of building, the mural is divided into four sections, each one of which shows a stage in architectural construction.
Some of Rubenstein's previous works are on the fourth floor of the museum where he completed two murals in 1932. In all his works is reflected his impression of the vigor of mural painting as compared with "dilettante" casel painting.
