Description

In 1926, the Print Club of Cleveland commissioned Ruzicka to produce a work for its members. He spent several months sketching in the Flats before selecting the recently constructed “High Level” or Detroit-Superior Bridge as his subject. Obviously working outdoors in the Flats, Ruzicka rendered the scene with remarkably sure and precise drawing.
