"Nymph and Fawn in Paradise," Superb Art Deco Mural Study Painting by Petersen



This quintessential Art Deco scene, with its nymph in Arabian costume offering a dish of water to a spotted fawn, was painted by Einar Petersen, a California artist known for his exotic mural painting. Petersen painted a set of murals on the theme of "Aladdin and His Lamp" for the spring street guaranty building and loan association and others for the Mayflower Hotel, Schaber's Cafeteria and other hotels, all in Los Angeles. The painting is executed in gouache and is the companion to another mural study offered by Renaissance Man. (The dimensions include the frame.).
