Welders (Sketch for relief panel)
April 1937
Chaim Gross

U. S. Federal Trade Commission
(Not in exhibition)
Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of the artist

This sketch was Gross's first idea for his relief for the Federal Trade Commission Building. It depicts "welders" rather than the "riveters" of the final relief. The composition remains rather informal, but he already had settled on a two/figure group.
