State Normal Art School, Boston, MA, 1889, Original Plan. Hartwell & Richardson
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of the State Normal Art School in Boston, Massachusetts. HAND-COLORED. H.W. Hartwell & W.C. Richardson, Architect(s). From the American Architect and Building News, March 2, 1889.
This picture is extremely hard to find, as the American Architect and Building News not only had a very small circulation during that time, but very few were actually preserved or colored as this has been. It measures 7.5 by 11.5 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole plan measures 12 by 16 inches (with mat border). Finely detailed and beautifully hand-colored. Shrink wrapped.
Plan is in VG+ condition with very light browning and some minor crinkling.
This is a highly unusual, scarce item. See our other auctions for more hand-colored original plans.
