The Pied Piper Like You've Never Seen Him

Palace Hotel...San Francisco

Want to see another treasure within the Palace Hotel? Head to the Pied Piper, bar and restaurant, for a drink and look at the masterpiece above the bar. 

This Pied Piper painting was commissioned from Maxfield Parish in 1909 for $6,000. It represents the tale of the Pied Piper…with a twist. Parish painted himself as the Pied Piper and some of the 27 expressive faces include those of his wife, his mistress, his sons, and more. 

What a guy!
