Artist's description:

I enjoy painting scenes from the beautiful campus at the University of Chicago. I’ve painted this one from the gargoyle’s perspective atop Cobb Gate. Cobb Gate is a neo-Gothic archway at the northern entrance to the Main Quadrangle of the University of Chicago campus. The gate, complete with gargoyles, was donated by Cobb to the university in 1900. According to university lore, gargoyles at the bottom of the gate represent first-year students, second and third-years climb the gate, with this large griffin at the top representing fourth-year students. This painting is one of a series of cityscape paintings that features the Main Quadrangles on the UChicago campus. Previously displayed at “That Gargoyle on My Shoulder” exhibit, Rockefeller Memorial Chapel, the University of Chicago. In order to keep shipping rates low, this painting is shipped as a rolled canvas. The rolled canvas is wrapped around wooden stretcher bars that can be used to re-stretch it after arrival.
