City View with Municipal Building, New York City
Red chalk and red crayon on oriental paper
Overall: 16 x 9 1/2 in. ( 40.6 x 24.1 cm ) mat: 19 1/8 x 14 1/4 in. ( 48.6 x 36.2 cm )
signature: lower right: "O. F. Langmann" inscription: lower left: "Centre Str."
Inscribed at lower left in blue ballpoint ink: "Centre Str"; signed at lower right in graphite: "Otto F. Langmann"
Insofar as the artist shows the rear of the Municipal Building in the background, it would seem that this view was taken from one of the narrow streets in the Chinatown area or to the east, rather than from Centre Street which is a wide thoroughfare with a different perspective of the Municipal Building.
Gift of Otto Frederick Langmann
