Mural Artist Falls 40 Feet to His Death

Martin K. Ziegner, 58, an artist, plunged 40 feet to his death from scaffolding near a mural he was working on in the second floor main lobby of the Palmer House yesterday as 20 persons watched. Ziegner, who lived at 6846 Hobart av. and had studios at 3353 N. Halsted st., had contracted to restore the huge mural which covers the ceiling of the lobby. He climbed onto the scaffolding to inspect preliminary work.

Three other men were on the scaffold at the time. A hotel spokesman said a plank in the scaffolding gave way.

Ziegner, who was born in Saxony and came to the United States at the age of 20, painted the huge mural decorating the 350 foot wall of the corridor connecting the Ambassador East and Ambassador West hotels. In 1931 he retouched the noted PANTHEON DE LA GUERRE (rotunda panorama) in Washington, said to be the world's largest mural on canvas. He renovated murals and painted new ones in St. Basil's Catholic church on Chicago's south side.

Other murals of his are in Providence of God Catholic Church, Zion Lutheran Church in Tinley Park, Henrici's O'Hare Inn restaurant, Uptown National bank, Germania Club and Diana Court restaurant.
