New York Skyline

Etching depicting street scene with Empire State Building center. In black and white in wooden frame. Discovered missing after August 1987.  In 1982, this watercolor was sent to the National Museum of American Art, to be placed in their permanent collection. GSA developed a label with the words Nat. Mus. Am. Art and an item number (in this case #129) on the label. The NMAA considered the work to be a temporary loan and on 10/24/1985, it was returned to GSA. In 1987, the work was sent out to be rematted and reframed; GSA employees picked up the artwork from the framer and placed it in storage in Room B-225. It was discovered missing after August 1987.
