We are pleased to present four rare WPA mural studies created by Otis Oldfield, one of the leaders of the Bay Area Modernist movement. These mural studies were submitted in competition for the position of muralist in three different Federal buildings: the Stockton Post Office, the Modesto Post Office and the Rincon Annex Post Office in San Francisco.
There has been a resurgence of interest in the Depression-era murals in Federal buildings. Many that were in storage or in disrepair are being conserved and brought back to their former grandeur for a new generation to appreciate. Similarly, the mural studies submitted by artists have become highly prized among collectors, and we are excited to be able to offer these detailed artworks to our clients.
