1 edition published in 1926 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A view of the Central Library rotunda, facing the northeast corner wall. View shows the information desk and ornately painted arches. This photograph was taken before Dean Cornwell started working on his murals, which would eventually be painted on all the upper walls depicting four great eras of California history: "Discovery" (north wall); "Mission building" (east wall); "Americanization" (south wall), and "The Founding of Los Angeles" (west wall). Distinguished muralist and illustrator, Dean Cornwell was awarded the contract for the Los Angeles Public Library murals in 1927, and spent the next five years researching and painting the final canvases, which he completed in 1932. Julian C. Garnsey designed the ornate mosaic-like dome of the Library's rotunda. This entire area sustained some smoke damage during the fire that ravaged the upper levels of Central Library, April 29, 1986

Unique view of rotunda ceiling, Central Library( Visual )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A unique look at the Los Angeles Public Library Rotunda, as seen through the photographer's special effects lens. The murals on the rotunda walls depict four great eras of California history. These are: "Discovery" (north wall); "Mission building" (east wall); "Americanization" (south wall), and "The Founding of Los Angeles" (west wall). Distinguished muralist and illustrator, Dean Cornwell was awarded the contract for the Los Angeles Public Library murals in 1927, and spent the next five years researching and painting the final canvases, which he completed in 1932. Julian C. Garnsey designed the ornate mosaic-like dome of the Library's rotunda. The sunburst image located directly above the globe chandelier mirrors the sunburst design of the pyramid on top of the building, a further illustration of the building's theme: "the light of learning". The chandelier that hangs from the rotunda's ceiling was designed by Goodhue Associates, modeled by Lee Lawrie, and manufactured by the Thomas Day Company of Los Angeles. It measures 9 feet in diameter, is composed of cast bronze, weighs one ton, and is part of a model of the solar system. This entire area sustained some smoke damage during the fire that ravaged the upper levels of Central Library, April 29, 1986
