- Cyril Colnik: Man of Iron Strekow, Alan J.$45.00
With the conclusion of the 1893 Columbian Exposition, Cyril Colnik arrived in Milwaukee at the perfect moment. During the last quarter of the nineteenth century, Milwaukee had become well known for its myriad of industries that included brewing, tanning, publishing, meat packing and machine manufacturing. A large part of Colnik's immediate success can be both literally and figuratively the result of his many German-American clients. They appreciated that Colnik already had the knowledge and talent to bring the ornate wrought iron ornament style of the Rhine to his newly adopted city. While Colnik was able to forge amazing designs in iron, he was also an excellent manager of the men whom he hired to embark on his growing commissions. He was a very sophisticated artist respected by everyone.

Early American Wrought Iron is a celebration of the village blacksmith revealing the master craftsman in all his glory, his technical skills, and artistry, and illuminating his crucial role in the development of American culture.

His search through museums, antique shops, private houses, and collections uncovered many fine examples of ironwork.They are illustrated here in 640 plates containing over 3,000 drawings. Sonn spent eight and one half years traveling along the East coast sketching and doing research for this classic work.
