Gregory Orloff did the above WPA easel painting for
the Forest Glen Elementary School,
561 Elm Street,
Glen Ellyn, IL 60137.
It measures 40"x 50" and is an oil on masonite painting
The painting apparently was privately acquired by a former student in 1948 when the old Forest Glen School building was torn down.
