About

During the 1930's, radios became commonly found in homes, as singers, comedians, and actors transmitted their voices over the airwaves alongside news broadcasters and President Franklin D. Roosevelt himself during his famous "fireside chats." In this painting, Eckel depicts a group gathered around a microphone ready to perform for the nation, bringing people together during the hardships of the Great Depression. Eckel uses a strong, single source of light coming from the right to illuminate each of the figures, but none moreso than the man and woman in the center of the composition, presumably the stars of whatever radio show is about to begin.

Custom Framing

We use the highest quality wood in our modern shop to create custom frames, frame your print with precision-cut acid-free mat board, and mount it behind a UV-blocking semi-gloss plexiglass to protect your art from the sun, dust, pollution, heat, and humidity. Then we add finishing touches like a wall hanging mount, wall friendly bumpers and a protective backing.
