Description
"The portrait of a city," said American Impressionist Childe Hassam in 1913, "is in a way like a portrait of a person—the difficulty is to catch not only the superficial resemblance but the inner self. The spirit, that's what counts, and one should strive to portray the soul of the city with the same care as the soul of a sitter." The spirit of New York City in particular has attracted many artists, both because of its energy, endeavor, and hustle, and because it has long been a center of the international art world. This book collects a remarkable series of such portraits, in full-page color reproductions, from artists like Piet Mondrian, Maurice Prendergast, Georgia O'Keeffe, Childe Hassam, George Tooker, Ben Shahn, Stuart Davis, Jacob Lawrence, and Edward Hopper.
