"Whether it is cocktails at the Carlyle, taking in a show at Lincoln Center, or flying out of LaGuardia Airport's venerable Marine Air Terminal, uptown to downtown to the outer boroughs, the art created for the walls and ceilings of New York's City's bars, hotels, offices government buildings, and schools have themselves created the identities of the spaces they live in. Murals of New York City is the first book to curate more than thirty of the most important, influential, and impressive murals found within all five boroughs. Full-color photographs of works such as Paul César Helleu's Sky Ceiling on Grand Central Terminal's ceiling, José María Sert's and Frank Brangwyn's Rockefeller Center murals, and work by such artists as Chagall, Haring, Lichtenstein, Parrish, and more are accompanied by informative and historical commentary"--Provided by publisher.
