Fountain of El Dorado
El Dorado, by Msr. Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, well-known as Mrs. Harry Payne Whitney, in the niche to the left of the arch under the Tower of Jewels as one enters from the south gardens. An imaginative and satirical conception of the competitive struggle for sucess and happiness, two decorative egyptian figures guarding the doors and keeping those that reach the threshold from entering.
