Pierre, Dorathi Bock, ed., "Memoirs of an American Artist, Sculptor Richard W. Bock," Los Angeles, CA: C.C. Publishing Co., c1989, 1991, pg. 45-47
Summary:
For Chicago's Schiller Theater Richard Bock created two large tympanum reliefs that flanked the stage. One tympanum depicted Schiller riding Pegasus led by Genius holding aloft a torch to guide the way. The other tympanum depicted Homer reading his verses to a female figure. Each tympanum was flanked by spandrel reliefs containing allegorical figures representing Strength and Beauty for one tympanum and Art and Music for the other tympanum. The original design called for caryatid lions on the sides, and in the boxes there were to be life-sized statues of children representing Morning, Noon, Evening, and Night, each standing on a pedestal. The lions and children elements were eliminated due to objections by the theater's owner who desired more seating area
