Westward, Iowa State Capitol Decoration, Des Moines, IA, 1906, Original Plan. E. H. Blashfield.
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of "Westward", a Decoration in the Iowa State Capitol in Des Moines, Iowa. HAND-COLORED. E. H. Blashfield, Architect. From the American Architect and Building News, February 24, 1906.
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 11.75 by 8.75 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole plan measures approximately 16 by 12 inches (with mat border). Finely detailed and beautifully hand-colored. Shrink wrapped.
Plan is in VG+ condition with light browning along the edges and some light crinkling.
