The Arch of Steel
was originally created as a lithographic print by American artist James E Allen printed on paper during the Great Depression in 1937 and is currently on display at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington DC, USA.
An image symbolic of the dark, oppressive times of the depression but with a message of hope : building bridges and stimulating the economy.
This is a digital re-construction / re-working of the old composition.
The original print can be seen at the bottom of the page.
