Product Description

Details

While employed as Assistant Curator (1930-1934) at the Whitney Museum, Karl Free designed the large bas-relief eagle above the front entrance facade of the museum on West 8th Street. He adapted this design to create the stenciled eagle that became the museum's insignia from 1931 until 1950s. This insignia was used on the museum's stationery, library book plates and on all exhibition catalogues and books. Free went on to become the Curator of Graphic Arts from 1935-1938.

The tote measures 18 x 15.5 inches, with 21 inch handles and 5 inch gusset. Cotton canvas.
