Grand Central Terminal is a major transportation hub located on the east side of Manhattan in Midtown. It is used today as a terminal for commuter rail lines in the Northeast. This particular poster was created in 1927 by the artist Earl Horter and depicts the terminal's central concourse area which is still in use to this day. It was created for New York Central Lines.
In the image the viewer's eye is attracted to the center of the image by virtue of the artistic effect of the sunlight streaming into the building.
Earl Horter (1835 -1940) was a Philadelphia born artist, as well as a very prolific collector of many forms of art, especially cubist work. Much of his collection is in the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
