Lot Essay

This lot was once part of a mural in the Grand Deluxe Shelburne Hotel in Atlantic City. The work was commissioned by Rodman Wannamaker in 1906. The mural was later divided into seven pieces and installed in the hotel dining room.

This painting will be included in the forthcoming catalogue raisonné of Frieseke's work being compiled by Nicholas Kilmer, the artist's grandson, and sponsored by Hollis Taggart Galleries, New York.
