Multiple color screenprint of an abstracted industrial landscape. In the foreground is a small strip of land, and in the middle ground are buildings of various geometric shapes and sizes. In the background, the rooflines of the buildings start to blend in and emerge from the cloudy sky.
According to Mark Rawlinson's book, Charles Sheeler: Modernism, Precisionism and the Borders of Abstraction, Sheeler's work after 1943 was thought to return to a simplified realism that he pursued in his early career. Sheeler began to consistently rework old themes, a trend that many critics saw as a decline in his talent. During this later period in his work, Sheeler would sift through various images and forms that he already knew and produce new and sometimes awkward compositions through a layering and combining of this past content. The layering of this work by Sheeler demonstrates a possible combining of various architectural forms he had worked with in the past.
