A large number of drawings exist in the collection for the mural titled On Earth, Peace. The scale drawing with transfer grid lines was probably presented to a committee for final approval of the project. While the General Electric 1939 World’s Fair Pavilion sketches are working drawings that allowed Kent to explore his vision for the mural. It is remarkable how true these sketches are to the finished mural.
