Painting, View of the Chrysler Building

This is a Painting.

This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from Museum of the City of New York as part of The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s.

Its medium is oil on canvas.

The Chrysler Building appears as a beacon of light above humble buildings as a paean to the glories of the pre-Crash skyscraper.

This object was previously on display as a part of the exhibition The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s.
