Print of my award-winning pencil drawing detailing Walter Van Alen's masterpiece, the Chrysler Building. Man's first structure over 1000 feet tall, the Chrysler Building was designed and built for Walter Chrysler and was the headquarters of the Chrysler Corporation until the 1950s. When completed in 1930, it was the tallest building in the world, but only for 11 months when the Empire State Building surpassed it. With such buildings near by such as the Empire State Building, the Twin Towers and the tragic events of 9/11, and now One World Trade Center, the Chrysler building isn't forgotten but often overlooked. I wanted to show in this drawing how this building is one of the most beautiful ever built, and a shining example of Art Deco architecture. Credit to photographer Reed Bryant for the inspiration.
