Some of you may very well have already been familiar with some (or all) of the post office muralists I’ve written about. Almost all of them have been new to me. While Victor Higgins is no exception, his painting Indian Girl with Parrot and Hoop is somewhat familiar to me. The M. Christine Schwartz Collection website states that, in the 1920s, Victor began drawing from myth and fantasy in his work. I don’t really see much evidence of that myself, but I do not have the best trained eye (or perhaps the web doesn’t have the most representative examples of such work). In any case, the trees in Spring Rain inspired card 175.
As for post office murals, Victor painted one: The First Crossing at Rocky Ford (Rocky Ford, Colorado).
