Signature Details
The then newly completed Isis Theater opened in Grand Rapids on Monroe Avenue on January 27, 1916, and contained a painting by Alten titled, "Three Graces." The painting shown here is likely a study for that painting which adorned the dome above the proscenium arch in the building. The building has since been razed and the painting apparently lost.
