About

St. Patrick's Cathedral is the largest decorated Neo-Gothic-style Catholic cathedral in North America. The cathedral, which can accommodate 3,000 people, is built of brick clad in marble, quarried in Massachusetts and New York. The main block of the cathedral is made of Tuckahoe marble. It takes up a whole city block, between 50th and 51st streets, Madison Avenue and Fifth Avenue. At the transepts, it is 174 feet (53.0 meters) wide and 332 feet (101.2 meters) long. The spires rise 330 feet from street level. Andrew B. Karoly studied art in Budapest before the outbreak of World War One. After the War ended in 1918 he began to produce paintings and etchings of scenes in Italy, Germany and particularly, France. It is believed Karoly came to live in New York c. 1920. During the 1903s, Karoly worked art projects commissioned by W.P.A (Works Progress Administration, including several large, public murals. At this time he often collaborated with Hungarian/American painter and etcher, Louis Szanto. Today the etchings and paintings of Andrew B. Karoly are included in many American collections.
