Artwork description:

This manipulated art photo is of Cobb Hall, which is on the Main Quadrangle at the University of Chicago. In fall soft red ivy rests against the muted grey limestone of Cobb Hall creating a quietly peaceful mood.
Cobb Hall was designed by architect Henry Ives Cobb, and is the oldest building on campus. Cobb modeled his designs after the Gothic style of architecture at Oxford in England. I am an architect, as well as an artist, and I really enjoy the Neo Gothic buildings on the main quadrangle at the university.
In the words of the university website: “Praised at the time of their inception, the towering limestone structures of the Main Quadrangles have now fulfilled their roles as the University’s sentinels for more than 100 years and become synonymous with permanence and immortality to generations of students. In the dialogue between … the lush flora and principal architect Henry Ives Cobb’s erudite stylistic choice, we come across one of the great moments of American architecture.”

This photo is part of my Digital Gothic cityscape series that includes digitally altered views of architectural details. My digital art is printed on enhanced matte, archival paper. It is shipped well-protected in a sturdy cardboard tube. If you prefer a larger or smaller size photo please use the message link on the right side of the screen, “Questions for the seller” to contact me. I can also provide prints on canvas.

Materials used:

Enhanced matte, archival paper
