|( Original 14X18 ) “PERGOLA”
Pioneer Square, Seattle, WA.
The pergola was designed by Seattle architect Julian Everett, and built in 1909 as a stop for the
Yesler and James Street Cable Car Company.
In 1910 the weekly Seattle publication Pacific Builder and Engineer printed this description of the
“The canopy is a combination of cast-iron posts with ornamental bent iron brackets, cornice and ridge
line. A total of 65,000 pounds of iron work is used on the job. The supporting columns, of Corinthian
design, each weigh about 500 pounds. The ventilating columns, of which there are four, each weigh
2,000 pounds: these columns also carry fixtures for four lights each. The entire roof of the canopy is
covered with wire glass, which was installed by the Westlake Sheet Metal Works.”
The background of my painting is intentionally obscure hoping to pull you into the light source creating
a desire to be that person sitting on the bench.
