Albuquerque Little Theater
, original fašade: "The
front of the building was designed to have a sort of shallow porch. The
upper walls of this recessed area were decorated with a fresco painting by
Dorothy Stewart of Santa Fe. She was assisted by Samuel Moreno, a
Mexican artist then in Albuquerque. The painting covers 900 square feet of
plaster, and, to quote the legend inscribed below, it depicts a Battle
Scene between the Moors and Christians in the Drama of Los Moros.
The mural was destroyed during a renovation [presumably the erection of the
new fašade] "some years ago". The balconied window on the right is also
seen in the 2014 image
, indicating the original
building still exists.
