Description

Trained as an architect as well as an artist, Arthur Bridgman Clark was known for his graphically strong woodcuts and ex-libris that often focused on architectural details. Here, an unusual view from a high angle illustrates the inner workings of urban 1930s Amsterdam, with the looping layout of its arterial routes - roads and canals - and the clean, sharp lines of the houses, campuses, and a cathedral. Much of this area has changed due to expanded highway systems and modernized architecture, but the feeling of the famous Dutch metropolis remains similarly vibrant and modern.
