Louis H. Sullivan
(American, 1856-1924)
Pilaster Capitals, 1898
From the Bayard-Condict Building, 65 Bleeker Street, Manhattan, designed by Louis H. Sullivan
Cast stone
64.260.1-6, Gift of Anonymous Arts Recovery Society
These capitals once graced the upper story of the Bayard-Condict Building, still standing in Manhattan and the only structure in New York City designed by the renowned architect Louis H. Sullivan. Completed in 1898 or 1899, the façade of the thirteen-story commercial building is still embellished with an exuberant array of Art Nouveau ornament in the form of angels, lions, and plant life. These capitals, removed in a 1964 remodeling of the façade, are also highly organic, with energetically spiraling vine-like tendrils entwined with leaves.
