Sculpture, New York
This is a sculpture. It was designed by John B. Storrs. It is dated ca. 1925. Its medium is brass and steel on black marble base (or vulcanite base).
American sculptor John Bradley Storrs conceived a series of works in the mid to late 1920s based on ideas derived from architecture. In this work, New York, of about 1925, Storrs uses brass and steel to link the aesthetic of the city to his grouped and stacked form, mimicking that last moment in the urban day when sunlight touches the tallest structures.
