Pen and Ink Drawing, "Past an [sic] Present," Gift to Henry Ford, circa 1920

Summary

Over the years, Henry Ford received hundreds of gifts from people who felt a connection with the automotive entrepreneur. For many, he was "one of them," someone who also just happened to become a great industrialist. This drawing seems to credit the innovations of Henry Ford as the dividing line between the artist's conception of the past and the present.
