Spirit of the American City
A unique interactive catalogue of original prints and historic photographs capturing where the artist once stood.

Spirit of the American City is an online show inviting viewers to imaginatively explore early 20th century prints through the perspective of period photography. See what the artist saw. Understand the inspiration. View it as a social time capsule while admiring the mastery of these revered printmakers. Available online, not in print.

What makes this show special? This is the first time that original prints have been paired with related videos and historic photographs. From a private east coast collection, these outstanding prints are by a wide range of well-known WPA period printmakers, including Edward Hopper, George Bellows, Charles Sheeler, Benton Spruance and Childe Hassam. Every print has been researched in detail and is accompanied by a mix of vintage photos, historic videos and news articles that give hints to what led the artist to capture that specific image in time.
