Mural Painters were organized for the purpose of fostering the development of the arts, which, whether executed in pigment, stained glass, mosaic, tapestry or other appropriate mediums, are used in the embellishment of architecture; also to formulate a code for decorative competitions, by-laws to regulate professional practise, to establish an educational propaganda through the agency of lectures, existing schools and in whatever suitable manner opportunity may suggest. There is no authoritative and complete publication devoted to these arts. For this reason, the Society puts forth this brochure as a beginning towards that end to provide a record in large part of the work already executed and to do its small share to establish the solidarity of the arts and consciousness in the minds of our people of the useful function of public mural paintings. It should be remembered that Wm. Hunt spaintings in the Albany Capitol emerged from an atmosphere of artistic torpor so far as mural painting was concerned which was felt even in France. John La Farge sbeautiful decoration in the Church of the A scension waited for twenty years after its execution for a general recognition beyond the few cognoscenti of its epoch. We have gone far since then, the initial efforts having been struck in the many and beautiful decorations of the Chicago World s Fair in the year 1892 and the Library of Congress a few years later. It is becoming more and more patent, as indeed it would appear inevitable, that our progress in art is extending its influence beyond its projectors and special patrons to that public which is not directly concerned, but who are becoming more and more impartial, cordial and interested.(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklor
