John Sloan, The City from Greenwich Village, 1922
via Cave to Canvas
The City from Greenwich Village is a lyrical celebration of the vitality and excitement of life in lower Manhattan. Looking south over Sixth Avenue from the artist’s Washington Place studio on a rainy winter evening, electric light merges with moonlight, casting an evocative golden glow over the city. At the far left, New York’s skyscrapers seem to hover over the city like a shimmering celestial vision.
