Secure Cables is a moving and kinetic, exhibited, WPA aesthetic, signed and dated oil on canvas painting by the Scottish Artist Albert Gordon Thomas. This honors the hard working efforts of those who advanced industry and commerce during the dizzying years of the industrial revolution and machine age. This was exhibited in 1935 in Scotland at the Stirling Fine Art Association show, the verso retains the original exhibition label with the hand written title. Additionally, there is a framers label from a Glasgow picture framer called John Gibson, who made this wonderful, wide profile, art deco handsome frame that is original to the artwork.
