Manhattan New York 1967 Framed Art 167/200 Welling
Beautiful, highly detailed, framed art drawing of Manhattan in 1967 (limited 167/200) by respected artist Richard Welling.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: The first picture is the closest I could get to what it actually looks like, since it's only black & white, and it looks better than the pictures here. I don't have an expensive high-end camera nor a professional photography art studio, so please excuse the glare from off the glass.
Beautiful artwork in great condition (frame & picture) with only very minor wear to the frame back covering. This limited framed artwork measures about 25 x 18. It shows a splendid view of Manhattan, shortly before construction began on the World Trade Center (in 1968).
SHORT BIOGRAPHY OF THE ARTIST :
Richard Welling, 83 (August 21, 1926 to November 5, 2009) was born in Hartford, the son of William and Muriel Welling. After serving in World War II in Europe, he studied at the Parsons School of Design in New York, graduating in 1949. He began his career first as a commercial artist and later as a fine artist. He chronicled the cityscape of Hartford in intricate line drawings that became his signature style. He also loved New York City and drew its skyline. A major project was drawing stages of construction of the twin towers at the World Trade Center. After the tragedy of September 11, 2001, Richard donated a number of these drawings to the New-York Historical Society. Recently, one was included in the exhibition "Drawn by New York, Six Centuries of Watercolors and Drawings at the New-York Historical Society." Richard published numerous collections of his drawings and wrote and illustrated two books on drawing techniques.
