Murals of New York City free pdf A celebration of New York City's most treasured public art. Whether it is cocktails at the Carlyle, taking in a show at Lincoln Center, traveling via subway, or flying out of LaGuardia Airport's venerable Marine Air Terminal, uptown to downtown to the outer boroughs, the art created for the walls of New York City's bars, hotels, offices, government buildings, and schools have themselves created the identities of the rooms they live in. Murals of New York City is the first book to curate over thirty of the most important, influential, and impressive murals found within all five boroughs. Full-color images of works such as Paul Helleu's "Mural of the Stars" on Grand Central Terminal's ceiling, Robert Crowl's "Dancers at the Bar" at Lincoln Center, Edward Lanning's New York Public Library McGraw Rotunda, Jose Maria Sert and Frank Brangwyn's Rockefeller Center murals, and work by artists such as Chagall, Haring, Lichtenstein, Parrish, and more are accompanied by informative and historical commentary. Perfect for art and architecture lovers, Murals of New York City serves as the perfect resource for New Yorkers and souvenir for the millions of tourists who visit the city every year.
