This painting was part of a series of illustrations commissioned by Fortune Magazine for an article which was titled "Anaconda Copper." The article was published in two parts, appearing in the December 1936 (pp. 82-95 and 225-232) and January 1937 (pp. 70-70 and 134-139) issues.
It is a depiction of an industrial scene. There is a small train in the foreground; a variety of industrial buildings in the middle distance; and a large smokestack on a low, rounded hill in the distant background. Predominant colors of browns, grays, and dark reds. "Anaconda Plant" is written in small letters on the bottom edge slightly to right of center.
