about Skyscrapers

Originally titled by Benno as "A Modern Ninevah, where man exploits man, and where the Arts and Sciences are either prostituted or are forced to languish in the prisons and concentration camps of men’s irreverent, frustrated and conscienceless hearts.

" An original oil on canvas by Benjamin Benno, American (1901 - 1980).  By the early 1930s he had established a reputation as a member of the international avant-garde and exhibited with the most significant European artists including Paul Klee, Max Ernst, Wassily Kandinsky, Salvador Dalí, Joan Miró, Hans Arp, and Fernand Léger. Pablo Picasso sponsored Benno’s first one-man show in Paris in 1934.
