Charles Turzak
Merchandise Mart (Chicago)

c. 1931


A dramatic, period Chicago cityscape, in the artist's art deco inspired signature style. A brilliant black impression, the full sheet with margins (1 1/8 to 1 1/2 inches), on cream wove Japan paper, in excellent condition. Titled in the lower left margin, signed 'C Turzak' and numbered '21/50', in pencil in the lower right margin. Other impressions of this work are in the permanent collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, Hubbard Fund, Library of Congress, and Newark Museum. Chicago's famed Merchandise Mart is the world’s largest commercial building, spanning two city blocks and rising 25 stories. Built in 1930 by Marshall Field & Co. and later owned for over half a century by the Kennedy family, the art deco landmark is located at the junction of the Chicago River's branches. The Mart centralized Chicago's wholesale goods business by consolidating architectural and interior design vendors and trades under a single roof.
