About

DAYTON BRANDFIELD (American 1911 -1993) 14th ST. PERSPECTIVE, 1936 Lithograph, Initialed and annotated "OK - DB" (Dayton Brandfield) and titled in pencil "14th St Perspective" in pencil. This is a rare printer's proof for a print published for the WPA/FAP (Federal Arts Project) The editions of the WPA/FAP prints are generally 25. This print is found in the General Services Administration (GSA) catalog of WPA prints in Museum Collections at the University of Kentucky and The Detroit Institute of the Arts. There is an additional example at the Metropolitan Museum - NY. dated 1936 and cited as a WPA print. The annotation "OK" would be equivalent of 'Bon A Tirer" Therefore it is a completed proof ready to print. In good condition, Image 17 x 13 1/4 inches with full margins. The subject is a view from 14th St. in New York looking North with the Empire State Building in the distance at the left. A very good example of the NY WPA. This print was actually published by the Federal Arts Project in New York and bears their stamp. The term WPA print is used rather loosely and incorrectly by many people when they really mean American Regionalism of the 1930's. The project initiated by Roosevelt was part of a wide spread Government Public Works of Art Project created as a means of support during the Great Depression. As the editions of the WPA are generally thought be about 25, they are fairly scarce. The project was organized into regions and New York was one region. There were general guidelines, however the regions operated with sometimes slightly different procedures. There was a point several year ago where the US General Services Administration (GSA) was claiming that the stamped prints were Federal property. However they have dropped that claim. The artists were allowed to keep a few impressions and others were given to members of Congress and others. So It impossible for the GSA to clearly claim title to any single impression as it might be one of the above.
