Frede Vidar was, according to his obituary, a professor at my alma mater, The University of Michigan, when he died at the ripe old age of 55. You can see at least one of his pieces at the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s website, as well as, the Whitney Museum of American Art’s website. Unfortunately, much of his web-viewable work is, as with so many post office muralists, relegated to auction websites, so I’ll not share them here. I do encourage you to look on your own. Vidar’s work varied quite a bit in his short life. A few pieces offer commentary on war and politics, and some area little sketchy.
Vidar painted one post office mural: River Landscape (Shelton, Connecticut).
