Detail from Preliminary Drawing (South wall of the Avalon Casino Theatre)
Watercolour and Graphite on Paper, 1929
Permanent Collection of the Catalina Island Museum
This poster depicts details taken from the preliminary sketches by John Gabriel Beckman for the interior murals of Catalina Island's famous Casino Theatre. The murals were executed by Beckman and a team of artists in an astoundingly short four-month period before the Casino's opening in 1929. Beckman is also known for the murals in Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.
