“Ballin took four large themes: religion, the arts, the senses and the seasons, and developed them into living stories told in color, form and gesture. The multitude of figures and symbols are bound together in an undulating rhythm that arises from the artist’s perception of the meaning and the relation of the many elements in the life of man. Both in conception and execution there can be no question but Ballin has created a masterpiece in these murals… [They are] a real contribution to the art of living in California...” – Arthur Millier, “The Ballin Murals in Los Angeles,” California Southland (1927)

Follow this path to explore Hugo Ballin's move to Los Angeles, his years as a filmmaker and how he integrated strategies from filmmaking into his murals at the Getz House.
