Footnotes

  • Provenance
    From the Collection of John H. Garzoli, San Rafael, California.

    The present work is a study for The Year's at the Spring, a 7 x 7 foot oil on canvas mural completed in January 1914 for the lobby of San Francisco's Mount Zion Hospital. 1 The mural depicts five women in an orchard with blossoming fruitwood, and the present figure is shown at far left. The mural was commissioned by Albert M. Bender, and its title was inspired by the Robert Browning poem of the same name. 2 The Year's at the Spring was described in the press as having 'a direct message of cheerfulness, of life at the spring, at the time of hope and buoyancy and energy....a lithe little dancer disports in the presence of several fair damsels, who, individually, and as a group, are expressive of living rhythms of grace and beauty.' 3
