The Classic Chicago Collection

220 S. Michigan Avenue, Chicago, Illinois.
Inscribed "Theodore Thomas Orchestra Hall" in 1904 for the first conductor and founder, the Hall is the home of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Chicago Symphony Chorus. This beautiful, neoclassic Georgian building was designed by Daniel H. Burnham as a permanent space for the city's finest musicians. Orchestra Hall has also opened its doors to such notable conductors as Arturo Toscanini, Daniel Barenboim, and Sir Georg Solti.

The 30" x 34" original drawing was produced with soft ebony and 2B-leaded technical pencils on paper, and took four weeks to complete in 1999. The artist began drawing Chicago's beautiful, older architecture to replace the many framed European prints hanging in its downtown "Loop" offices. The new series of master works, rivaling the eighteenth and nineteenth century etchings and engravings of Rome, Athens, and Paris, is called "Clasic Chicago: The Art of Architectural Drawing."
