The Peter Hurd Fresco 1953-1954
Rotunda, Texas Tech Museum

"This mural (fresco) is one Peter Hurd's great works. It is not a copy of some other artist's plan but an original conception executed in his own individual manner. The man who had the idea brought a great challenge to Hurd which he met with enthusiasm.
