Charles C.J. Hoffbauer (1875–1957), A Rainy Night in New York, 1950
Oil on canvas board. Promised gift of Elie and Sarah Hirschfeld, Scenes of New York City
Here, Hoffbauer reminisces about New York. The French-born artist had lived in the city before moving to Hollywood to work in film animation. In this painting, he looks back upon Manhattan street life, unrestrained by the rain.
