|Gordon Langdon | fresco | 10 feet by 27 feet Detail image of a
portion of the mural. Connected naturally by position and subject matter to Howard's mural,
Langdon's painting shows the "agri-business" of timber and dairy. Fellow artist Lucien Labaudt is
showering a cow. One is conscious of Langdon's rounded forms—the cattle and small pebbles in the
foreground, which show a vertical cross-section of the dairy floor, and serve as a visual link with
Howard's companion mural at left.
