At the ends of this room are reproductions of two famous paintings - The Angeluis and The Gleaners. About 1919, Count Edmond deSzaak, who was stranded in our city, was commissioned to do these paintings. The Count was born in Budapest, Hungary. He studied art at some of the greatest educational and cultural centers of Europe, including Vienna, Paris, and Rome. The murals he painted in the Clay County State Bank are on canvas. They were never varnished over, consequently time has faded and dimmed the colors.
The ceiling of this room is also a beautiful thing.
