About this artwork

Leonard Havens attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and was a private student of Todros Geller before eventually earning degrees from Northeastern University, in Boston. He often found inspiration in Chicago’s urban landscape, and he completed this print of the South Side’s billowing, iconic smokestacks just before he was called to serve in the Second World War.
