In 1913, novel contemporary events such as the unprecedented Woolworth Building, a record shattering architectural achievement, framed the experience of visitors to the Armory Show. Influenced by the architecture that he saw on a trip to Europe in 1885, Colin Campbell Cooper (1856 1937) made a specialty of painting cityscapes. When he settled in New York, Colin Campbell Cooper (1856 1937) found that Manhattan provided both the charm of the Old World, as well as the drama of the modern urban metropolis. Our lamp depicts Coopers painting, Hudson River Waterfront, and features the Woolworth (1913) and Singer (1911) buildings, at that time the first and second tallest buildings in the world.
