Description

The Palace of Fine Arts was one of the key sites at the Panama-Pacific Exhibition, a world's fair held in 1915 San Francisco. In 1964 the deteriorating rotunda and colonnades were rebuilt.

Bruno Louis Zimm‘s “The Struggle for the Beautiful” are the three repeating panels surrounding the top of the rotunda. Ulric Ellerhusen designed the weeping women on top of the columns, and his sculptured friezes at ground level show women representing Contemplation, Wonderment and Meditation.
