NEUTRA, RICHARD. 1892-1970.
NEUTRA SKETCH OF HOLLYWOOD AND VINE.
Original pen and ink drawing, 19 by 12 1/2 inches, signed at lower right ("Richard J. Neutra, Arch") in block letters, titled "cor. Hollywood & Vine, 1932," on waxed linen paper, laid down to board, some cockling and stains from adhesive, edges trimmed.

After studying with Modernist architect Erich Mendelsohn, Richard Neutra immigrated to New York City in 1923 before traveling west. California became the perfect backdrop for Neutra's dramatic revisioning of indoor/outdoor space, and he soon made a name for himself with his 1929 design of the Lovell House in the Hollywood Hills.
This drawing is of the Laemmle building at 6301 Hollywood Blvd, the northwest corner of Hollywood and Vine. An early Neutra commission, the building was famous for many years as the site of the Melody Lane Cafe. It still stands today, though it has been heavily altered.
See illustration.
