Angel & Ivy

This drawing is 10 3/4" x 8 1/8" and will be featured in my show at Stonehenge Gallery which opens on September 8th. The drawing is of 4th Presbyterian Church in Chicago, Illinois. Gorgeous ivy grows around its rich ornamentation. I love the deep shadows that are cast by the ornamentation and the ivy. The church is in the Gothic Revival style and was designed by architect Ralph Adams Cram. Cram's best known work is the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City. The building combines the what Cram saw as the best of English Gothic and French Gothic styles. The cornerstone was laid in 1912 and the church was dedicated in 1914.                                   Original Available
