Theo Ballou White (1902-1978) was a prolific Philadelphia artist and architect born and trained in Philadelphia, and worked later in Norfolk, VA. His lithographs are very much of the urban school style of the 1930s and 1940s producing a number of interesting prints, mostly architectural, from Philadelphia and around the United States. All of the works are of a quality that reflects White’s background as an architect; his trained eye focuses our attention on interesting details of the buildings he so lovingly portrays.
