The exterior of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) building is enhanced by several works of art commissioned by the Treasury Department’s Section of Fine Arts in 1938.
The building is fronted on the east side by two monumental sculptures, entitled “Man Controlling Trade”, by Michael Lantz (1942). These allegorical sculptures, in Art Deco Style, depict a muscular man holding a rearing stallion, symbolizing the force of trade and the government’s role in regulating it.
