  • Description
    Signed and dated (at lower right): L. E. BLAZEY

    Lawrence Blazey executed “Euclid Avenue, Cleveland” around 1930. Rendered in clean, architectonic lines, “Euclid Avenue, Cleveland” is taken from a vantage point high up in one of the street’s towering skyscrapers, looking vertiginously downward to the busy commercial thoroughfare dotted with cars and electric trolleys. Euclid Avenue is Cleveland’s most famous street, and it was internationally renowned in the nineteenth century for its beauty and concentration of wealth. Blazey’s Precisionist-like style and daring perspective capture the dynamism and modernity of this booming center of Cleveland’s economy.

    Cleveland-born painter, advertising artist, and industrial designer, Blazey received his professional training at the Cleveland School of Art (now the Cleveland Institute). Trained in a broad area of practice very much in the manner of the Bauhaus School, Blazey also lectured on architectural design, product development and engineering, and ceramics. In his professional life, he produced paintings and illustrations for advertisements. As an artist, Blazey is best known for his architectural paintings and drawings from the 1920s and 1930s. He exhibited regularly at the Cleveland Museum of Art from 1928–57, winning several prizes. In the 1930s and early 1940s, Blazey also participated variously in annual exhibitions at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts; the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; and the Art Institute of Chicago.
