Painting, View of the Chrysler Building, 1933
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.
The Chrysler Building appears as a beacon of light above humble buildings as a paean to the glories of the pre-Crash skyscraper.
