  Chrysler Building!!
 
 
  Back    
  Leon Dolice   (1892-1960)

 
  THE CHRYSLER BUILDING, ca. 1930. Signed in pencil in the gray border of the image, l.r. The Chrysler Building was completed in 1929 from plans by William Van Alen and stands in all its Art Deco glory at Lexington Avenue and 42nd Street. It is by far the most exciting building in the Manhattan skyline, and Dolice makes its importance very clear. The white patches of cloud and steam, the light glinting off the tall building, and the grayish aquatint of the surrounding spaces all add to the dramatic effect. In very good condition.
