Reproduction University of Chicago 1908 Bird's Eye Campus View in very good condition. The original artist was Richard Rummell (1848-1924). Rummell was a Brooklyn based artist who specialized in works of colleges and universities. Since it was quite difficult to do a bird's eye view in 1913 it has been speculated that Rummell worked from a hot air balloon, however, it is more likely that he used some process of isometric drawing to convey the illusion of altitude. His original prints were done in small editions and are extremely difficult to find, thus the reproduction.
Measures 40 inches by 24 inches. Subtle use of colors on the print shows all the key campus buildings. Suitable for framing.
