Centerpiece of a commission from General Motors at the 1939 World's Fair in New York (Flushing, Queens). The group of sculptures was titled "American Imports and Exports" and was a celebration of American labor. The factory and farm workers are on opposite sides of the piece which ascribes qualities to labor in a similar manner as did monumental social realist sculpture of the old Eastern European countries and the old Soviet Union.
The original object was scanned as a TIFF file on a Nikon Coolscan 4000 film scanner at approximately 4000 pixels on the long dimension. A 300 ppi JPEG file limited to 1024 pixels on the long dimension was then added to the CONTENTdm database.
