During the 1920s, John Storrs created non-objective, or abstract, sculpture that was influenced by the era's prevailing style, Art Déco. In this small work, Storrs plays with different colored metals, shaped into the form of a skyscraper, to evoke the shiny, new, streamlined, modernism of the1920s.
