Chanin Building, completed 1929, New York
Martin Lewis, American (born Australia), 1881 - 1962. Printed by Charles S. White, American, active mid- 20th century.
The dramatically illuminated Chanin Building, completed in 1929, glows in the background of Martin Lewis's print, contrasting sharply with the everyday scene of a family in the foreground. While the parents talk, their curious daughter peers into the depths of a new skyscraper's foundation.
