Harry LeRoy Taskey

Taskey was born in Rockford, Indiana in 1892, and studied art at the Art Students League with John Sloan and Harry Sternberg. Most of his artwork was done with the New York Federal Art Project, in the years, 1935-1943. A great deal of his graphic work was devoted to the architecture and social scene of New York City. Some of his notable prints of New York are, "Manhattan Sheep," "Battery Park," "Pretzel Vendor," "City Hall," "Herald Square," and the "Civic Repertory Theater," all in editions of 25 or less.
