Art Print Description:
I’ve said many times how much I love the vintage flair of the old movie palaces like the Chicago Theatre seen here. There’s just such a cool escapist style to those old theaters. They were experiences unto themselves! Going to the movies was half the entertainment it seems back in the day.
So what’s better than a view of the beautiful old Chicago Theatre Marquee? How about a vintage view of it as it looked back in 1949? When I stumbled over the black and white photo this artwork is based upon on the Library of Congress website, I was instantly taken by the scene of a wet night in the city. This glimpse at the golden years of the Chicago Theatre is courtesy of Look magazine which was published from 1937-1971. After it closed shop, most of their catalog of work was donated to the Library of Congress. If this Chicago scene is any indication, it must have been a beautiful glimpse of America in the middle of the last century.
Not only is the old Chicago Theatre sign in the pouring rain eye-catching, just look at those retro-cool vintage cars! I consulted period color charts to select not just the car colors but many other elements of this vintage scene. But in the end, I wanted a feel that was reminiscent of old color cartoons of the period. Just the sort of scenes that children might have once watched at a matinee on the screens at the old Chicago Theatre! With those mid-century cars, how could I resist going after that vibe? Don’t you half expect a super hero to appear on the scene at any moment?
I would love to hear what called to you when you saw this vintage Chicago Theatre print? Was it the retro color scheme? The vintage flair? Or is it simply that this print fulfills a yen you have for a little piece of Chicago history for your home?

Received the print today! It’s gorgeous! I really can’t thank you enough.
I’ll frame it and hang it in my apartment in NYC as soon as I get back.
I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!
I purchased this pair of Tisdale artwork (Dawn Divides and Contemplating Life) for a wedding gift. The couple are getting married this summer in a facility on the Chattahoochee in Roswell, GA. This pair of photos on canvas is going to mean so much to them. I could not be more pleased to give them as a gift to my son and new daughter-in-law.
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
We ordered several of your pieces for hallways and a few offices at our business. Everything turned out great.

I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.
Mark Tisdale’s work is excellent.
The cards are very high quality. Images are sharp and colors are vibrant!
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…

Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
I ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. … It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
DeAnn just called me so very excited, she received the picture. She thinks it’s just beautiful.
Thank you so much and I’m sure you will be hearing from her too.
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it… It’s absolutely beautiful.
I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris.
Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
I gifted my father with this piece (Troy’s Snack Shack Print) and he loves it! He thought the man in the doorway was him.
Beautiful! Love it! Five stars!!! Many thanks! 🙂
…it is a surprise for my daughter when she comes home from college.. …and I can’t wait for her to see it!! Nice surprise for her finishing her first year and doing amazing!
I treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
