From the Introduction: "It may be timely, therefore, to rediscover some of the work of past masters of the rendering art, representing collectively most of the significant styles. As recipients of the Birch Burdett Long Memorial Prize presented almost annually at the Architectural League of New York, they cover a period from 1928 to the present, reflecting the changing tastes of the various eras. Although each is an expression of the individual artist’s personality, all share the basic requirement and purpose of a realistic visualization of architecture." Quantity Available: 1.
