Childe Hassam (1859–1935), Study for Battery Park, 1916
Graphite and white chalk on brown paper Promised gift of Elie and Sarah Hirschfeld, Scenes of New York City
Skyscrapers surround Battery Park (now the Battery). Hassam noted that such structures impress most in groups, with “their zig zag outlines towering against the sky and melting tenderly into the distance.” At center is the Woolworth Building, then the tallest building in the world.
