City of Hope Visitor Services Center, untitled, Duarte, 1936. Visitor Services Center, interior, City of Hope (originally the Los Angeles Tubercular sanitorium), 1500 East Duarte Road (between Buena Vista Street and then 605 Freeway), Duarte. This T-shaped painting surrounding a doorway includes more than 30 nude and semi-nude figures depicting the sweeping progression of human life. To the left is the energy and hopefulness of youth, while on the right the scenes are of decline and disappointment. Connecting the two sections is a group of figures over the door representing the arts. The mural was in part inspired by Luca Signorelli's fresco series at the Orvieto Cathedral in Italy (1499-1504). The building was originally a library, and then spent many years as the John Howard Grace Graphic Arts Building. In June, 1998, the new Visitor Services Center opened and conservation work on the mural completed by Eduardo P. Sanchez of the J. Paul Getty Museum in collaboration with private conservator Aneta Zebala and her assistant Marissa Kuizenga. Sponsored by Federal Project. Fresco, 163 square feet, by Philip Guston (aka Philip Goldstein) and Reuben Kadish. -- Dunitz, Street gallery, rev. 2nd ed., p. 339, #1.
