The Product: Chrysler Building New York City print
A New York City print of the Chrysler Building. The Art Deco-style skyscraper is located on the East Side of Manhattan in New York. At 1,046 feet (318.9 m), the structure was the world’s tallest building for 11 months. However, the Empire State Building surpassed it in height in 1931. Initially, there were mixed reviews of the building’s design. Descriptions ranged from ‘inane’ and ‘unoriginal’ to ‘modernist’ and ‘iconic’. Perceptions evolved and today, the Chrysler Building is seen as a paragon of the Art Deco architectural style.
A signed Giclée, this New York city print artwork is printed using the highest quality acid-free light-fast archival 300gsm Minuet Cotton Rag. The heavyweight etching board is velvety smooth with a fine surface texture and is one of the most widely used media worldwide for artwork and photography. Using pigment-based UltraChrome and Ultra Violet (UV) inks, the Giclée printing process ensures superior detail, colours and longevity. The print comes unframed and is delivered in a cardboard tube for you to take straight to your local framer.
We’d suggest a slim, white frame with subtly visible woodgrain and a white card mount, if you want the frame to disappear – against a white wall, for example – and the print to stand out. Equally, the same style of frame in black teamed with a white card mount will outline the drawing, acting like bold, precise punctuation! The third option would be a softer, warmer effect with a natural or stained wooden mount. All three will work beautifully, depending on the backdrop, and the look you are aiming for. Artworks such as these will often leap out, to striking effect, from a dark-hued wall. Browse the full collection of architectural line drawings from around the world, here.
