Arthur Peabody, Architect: Leon Pescheret, Consulting Decorator. From the American Architect, July 5,1929. Reverse side has view of Main Lounge in Hall with some commentary.

This picture is extremely hard to find. The American Architect had a very small circulation during this time and these original lithographs only appeared in a very limited number of issues that were distributed to a few prominent architects. It measures 8.5 by 11.75 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole picture measures approximately 12 by 16 inches (with border). Extraordinary detail in this early photographic print. Shrink wrapped.
Plan is in VG+ condition with browning around the edges and light crinkling.
This is a highly unusual, scarce item. See our other auctions for more original pictures from this era.
