2019 Art in Focus
Getting to Know New York- The Art of Rockefeller Center. This iconic complex is home to a remarkable collection of art deco motifs and sculptures signifying man’s development in spirit, science, industry, and more. Atlas, created in 1937, is a successful collaboration between two talented artists, Lee Lawrie, who conceived the idea and designed the figure, and Rene Chambellan, who modeled the heroic-sized statue from his sketch. rockefellercenter
