Andreas Feininger's cityscapes of New York City from the 1940s combine an architect's love of precision, space, and technique with an artist's love of sweeping vistas. All aspects of New York City and its buildings attracted the photographer, its people, its cars and traffic jams, its confusion and even its ugliness. He saw the city as a living organism: dynamic, sometimes violent, and even brutal. The New-York Historical Society library boasts a full set of prints from Feininger's book New York in the Forties. Seen in this archival giclee print is Feiningers Empire State Building Dim Out, ca. 1940s, featuring a silhouette of the skyline during WWII New York was subject to a "dimout" of lights intended to protect the city from Axis bombings.
Details: archival giclee print, black lacquer wood frame, single white 4ply matt and clear Plexiglass.
