1920s Beaux Arts/Art Deco Architectural Plan, Large Charcoal Drawing, Hibshman, Stunning!

1920S PEN & CHARCOAL BEAUX-ARTS ART DECO ARCHITECTURE PLAN

Founded in 1894 from a core group of American architects who had studied in France at the Ecole de Beaux-Arts, the Society of Beaux-Arts Architects aimed to ‘remedy the vagaries and abuses of architecture as it is too generally practiced in the United States’; they were successful in this primarily through there instituting a rigorous and highly competitive atelier based curriculum based on the French School. They held yearly competitions where awards were given to the most excellent work. For your consideration is this 192os pen and watercolor classical architecture plan for an untitled plan conceived by B. T. Hibshman of the Cleveland School of Architecture and the University of Pennsylvania, a regular contributor to the awards process. It features a magnificent plan of a modernly designed Woolworth Building-like structure rising above the night time streets of the city, complete automobiles and pedestrians with inner plans at the bottom margins. Entitled “I Am a Citizen of the USA”, this spectacular architecture plan brings to life the stark glory captured so eloquently in the literature of the time by F. Scott Fitzgerald in his The Great Gatsby. Quite a bit larger than many of Hibshman’s other plans and rendered nicely in dramatic black and white via charcoal, this original architectural plan mirrors the grace and modernity of design as it was in 1920’s America. Spectacular.

Condition notes: Good+. This circa 1920s architecture plan measures60 inches by38 inches. This plan does not bear the usual stamps from the Society of Beaux-Arts Architects seen in some of his other work, although the phrase “2nd Mention” is softly written in the lower right corner ;it also states Hibshman’s name in the lower right corner. There is a light overall warp due to being stored in a rolled position, and there is a faint patch of discoloration near the upper right edge. Several small edge chips as well as a 7 inches tear at the top edge (please see photos). The overall impression of this distinct, bold and classically designed Art Deco building giving proud life to the title, I Am a Citizen of the USA, by B. T. Hibshman of Cleveland is one of refined mastery, the work being in overall Very good condition. This vintage architectural plan will be safely mailed in a
