Large and richly-illustrated volume documenting the artwork adorning New York's Rockefeller Center, a commercial business complex that covers 22 acres. Despite being constructed during the Great Depression of the 1930s, John D. Rockefeller Jr. had the complex of buildings incorporate an ambitious programme of artistic decoration, especially sculpture and bas-relief. This book studies each building in turn, examining the artwork and its underlying inspiration. There are photographs in both colour and B&W, showcasing the artwork as well as the construction of the building.
