Subject

Drawing, American--20th century.
Figure drawing.
Fredericks, Marshall M., 1908-1998

Description

Colored pencil and graphite on tracing paper
18.25" x 12"

Fredericks stylized Victory Eagle in a very geometric and angular way for the exterior of the Federal Reserve Bank in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Although abstracted, the Victory Eagle appears to be landing on the surface of the pedestal. Moreover, it is situated above the eye-level of the viewer and looks down with glaring eyes. Its upraised wings, sharp beak, and talons add to its fierceness.
