Photograph of Tobey working on one of six murals for the MacArthur Memorial in Norfolk, VA. In this Mural of Surrender on the Missouri, Tobey painted a total of 52 portraits from photographs of all the people who were aboard the vessel at the time. Photo: American Artist, May 1976.
In a style that is in stark contrast to that of his representational work seen in his murals and historical paintings, Tobey's "Curvilinear" paintings have been exhibited extensively in The United States, South and Central America and in Europe.
