The Holy Trinity with the Virgin

Kent Twitchell

1977-1978. Former Otis Parsons School of Art and Design, 2401 Wilshire Blvd (facing Carondelete St.) Acrylic, 40' x 56', done for the artist's master's thesis. According to Robin Dunitz' Street Gallery (Los Angeles, RJD Enterprises, 1993), "These three standing figures wearing white scientific lab coats are meant to be Mother Mary, God, and Jesus Christ. As models the artist used three well-known television personalities who all represent traditional values. Jan Clayton (as Mother Mary) played the mother on the original "Lassie." Clayton Moore (God) was "The Lone Ranger." Billy Gray (Jesus Christ) played Bud, the son on "Father Knows Best." (p. 72)
