Anton Refregier (1905-1979) was a muralist, a printmaker, sculptor, and set designer. Immigrating from Moscow, Russia at 15 years old, Refregier attended the Rhode Island School of Design just one year later. During the Great Depression he worked as part of the Works Progress Administration, notably completing a mural of the �History of San Francisco� at the Rincon Post Office in San Francisco, which included contentious events from the city�s history and sparked controversy and national debate. The mural was added to the National Registry of Historic Places in 1979. Refregier held teaching positions at the short-lived American Artists School in New York and Bard College. His work can also be found in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Brooklyn Museum, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Cooper Hewitt Museum, and the Woodstock Artists Association, among others.
