Nat Lowell documented beloved New York City landmarks in detailed etchings over several decades. Subjects included the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor, the George Washington Bridge, the Brooklyn Bridge, the Manhattan skyline and the Church of the Transfiguration, popularly known as “The Little Church Around the Corner.” Lowell frequently juxtaposed the architecture’s geometry and details with the irregular shapes of foliage or shadows. Some of the prints were issued black and white, and others with hand color.
Nat Lowell, an emigrant from Latvia, studied at the Art Students League and with artists Siddons Mowbray and Gutzon Borglum. He is well known for his views of New York City, emphasizing the steel and granite splendors of bridges, monuments, and tall buildings. He taught art at Hunter College and at the New School in New York City. His works are represented in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Newark Museum, the New York Public Library, the New-York Historical Society, the Albright-Knox Art Gallery and the Library of Congress.
