Parrish mural will go to auction

The Palace Hotel in San Francisco has removed its Maxfield Parrish mural "The Pied Piper." It will go to auction May 23 and is expected to fetch three to five million dollars.

The painting, which measures 16 feet long by six feet deep, is considered a major San Francisco cultural treasure and is a major feature of the Pied Piper room, selected as one of the city's "legacy bars and restaurants" by the San Francisco Architectural Heritage. The hotel said the painting was being sold because "it is no longer practical for the hotel to display, an original work of this value and cultural significance, in a public area."
