Leon Kroll (1884–1974), Broadway Looking South, 1919
Oil on canvas board. Promised gift of Elie and Sarah Hirschfeld, Scenes of New York City
This painting romanticizes Broadway as a grand urban thoroughfare. Recalling French Impressionist pictures of the boulevards in Paris, it opens onto a wide, rain-slicked street marked by reflections of electric light and the double domes of the Ansonia Hotel.
