About

Winold Reiss and the Cincinnati Union Terminal: Fanfare for the Common Man by Gretchen Garner. Ohio University Press, 2016. 160 pages softcover. When Winold Reiss won the commission to design and install the immense mosaic murals in the Cincinnati Union Terminal in 1931, he was already a noted artist. After immigrating to the United States from Germany in 1913, he quickly had become a sought-after portraitist and designer of large public art projects. The Cincinnati Union Terminal murals are extraordinary not only for their size and the boldness of their color and design but also for the artist's use of mosaic, an unusual choice for the time. After Reiss's death, he and his work fell into relative obscurity as tastes and trends in art changed. The terminal itself closed in 1972 and was partially demolished. It reopened in 1990, transformed into the Cincinnati Museum Center, and the awe-inspiring murals of the rotunda are once again on view to the world. Winold Reiss and the Cincinnati Union Terminal collects full-color images of the mosaic murals, including those rescued before the demolition. The author traces from the inception of the mural project and the selection of Reiss to design and construct it, as well as Reiss's own development as an American artist and the artistic and historical context for the work. NPT Books, a division of Trent Antiques, has a large collection of used and out of print books on art, architecture, decoration and antiques with a focus on 1st editions, signed and limited editions.
