Elsie Driggs (1898-1992) was the only woman artist who participated in the Precisionist movement in American art, which focused on the machine age, with industrial images depicted in geometrically simplified compositions.  Her abstract rendition of the "Queensborough Bridge," painted in 1927, exemplifies the subject matter and style associated with this 1920s art movement.
