"Looking Toward Temple Rock," Surreal Ptg. by Edward Buk Ulreich



This surrealist scene of a robed woman looking back at an island topped with a diaphonous temple is mysterious and mesmerizing. It was signed and dated 1935 by Edward Buk Ulreich, an important WPA muralist in the 1930s, who also inscribed it to a friend on the reverse. Ulreich created mosaics for the 1933 "Century of Progress" Exposition in Chicago, murals for Radio City Music Hall, and several post office murals for the Works Progress Administration.
