"Victorious Spirit"
"Victorious Spirit," mural painting by Author F. Mathews, Dean of California Painters, over the north doorway in the Court of Palms. The Angel of Light, with outspread wings of gold, is protecting youth and his guadians, to the left, from the spirit of materialism mounted on the fiery horse. The painting is considered by many critics one of the best murals in the exposition. The choice of colors is especially skilful, the deep purplesbringing out the spendor of the golden tones and giving strength and richness to the canvas as a whole.
