This pencil/watercolor drawing on heavy paper, 34 1/2" by 24 1/2" is actually signed by the artist, one "Sil Marraccini" at lower right and is dated 2/11/39. Originally intended as architectural plans, it would today easily qualify as a late Deco/early mid century art work on its own accord. I believe I acquired this in the San Francisco area, where Bank of America began. No doubt this was a plan for the interior details and exterior elevation of a branch of the bank. This has been rolled for a long time, so, it needs to be framed behind glass and flattened out; there is some soiling, nothing serious; and a small abrasion in center that to me at least isn't a big issue. The architect's own crayon notes at bottom could be matted out. Properly framed, perhaps in a silver-gray mat to complement the pinkish colors, this would be an elegant piece indeed. The architect didn't likely intend that this be a work of art, but, that is exactly what time has made it. It's a subtle work, and hard to photograph, (the "tiger stripe" effect is shadowing due to the roll in the paper and its effect on the available light), but I think in person it will be clear that this is a decorative work indeed. .
