James E Allen  

was an American illustrator, printmaker and painter who lived from 1894 to 1964. His works often featured highly dramatized industrial scenes from the early twentieth century.

These black and white prints often featured an exaggerated perspective and were designed around highly contrasted lighting and deep shadows.
