New! It’s showtime at Radio City
We don’t know about y’all, but we sure have been in a festive mood lately. We decided to lean into this mindset of merry with our newest Vintage Edition hailing from the home of holiday high spirits itself: Radio City Music Hall.
Shot by Brooklyn-born photographer Samuel H. Gottscho (1875-1971) in December 1932—just a few weeks before the grand opening—Radio City Music Hall is a ten octave range of revelry and resplendence. The stage is magnificently framed by massive sixty foot high arches, dwarfing the thousands of tiny seats below. This iconic image is heavy with anticipatory excitement—curtains drawn and bright light peeking out from the base of the folds. Can’t you hear the orchestra warming up?
Born in 1875, Gottscho was a renowned architectural and landscape photographer. His work was characterized by dramatic use of light and shadow, highlighting the intricate curves and angles of his subjects. While he became best known for his nature photography later in life, it was his dazzling documentation of New York City structures that captured the magic of the season.
Radio City Music Hall packs a powerful punch, so why not go BIG? Frame this bad boy up at 30"x40" for some merriment with magnitude. Or maybe you’re looking for some pint-size pep with prodigious personality. Whatever your vibe, this print is sure to impress at any size. So snap one up and start the show!
