Eric Sloane : Morton Salt Building Mural

Eric Sloane’s 1958 Mural in the President’s Office, Morton Salt, Chicago, IL

Eric Sloane painted this stunning mural for the President of Morton Salt in 1958. Rumor has it that, when the building was demolished, an undisclosed collector paid an equally undisclosed sum to have a team of “specialists” cut the mural intact from the wall. I’ve never been able to track the truth of the rumor down, nor am I aware of anyone who has seen the mural since this photo was taken.
