Kline frequented Greenwich Village, a haunt of artists with whom he would pioneer the bold and gestural style of Abstract Expressionism. In this early painting, he pictures a neighborhood landmark. Now a garden, the triangular intersection once hosted political campaign speeches, community gatherings, troop drills, and children’s play.
