Arthur H Middleton “The Golden Gate” Woodblock 1930s SOLD P646

In black and gold (!) inks this ecstatic woodblock of the Golden Gate Bridge is full of wind and motion, the trees bent low and the clouds scudding past. It captures the special feeling only San Franciscans have about their city and the Bay Area, one of great pride, excitement and unmitigated joy in living there. This view of the iconic bridge is taken from the Presidio.
