Apollo is possibly a fourth version of Grell’s mythological chariot ridding Sun God. Grell was commissioned to paint large renditions of this deity for the Chicago Theatre (1921 & 1933), the Netherland Plaza Hotel in Cincinnati (1931) and the Times Square Paramount Theatre (1926). This fourth version has four lesser deities surrounding the Sun God and is similar to the Chicago Theatre which includes other dieties surrounding Apollo around the proscenium arch of the 1921 theatre.
