In 1948 the artist realized he wanted to reflect a broader view of life than was possible in his New York studio. American industry had provided the tools for winning World War II, yet few artists were interested in it as a subject. In January, 1949 he set out in an old 1/4 ton truck on which he had built a six foot cabin. For the next six months he visited numerous industrial areas and recorded his impressions in watercolor and alkyd enamels.
