John Marin (1870–1953), Movement, Nassau Street, 1936.
Watercolor and graphite on paper. Promised gift of Elie and Sarah Hirschfeld, Scenes of New York City
This painting bursts with energy and movement. A jumble of building fragments describes the maze-like streetscape of the Financial District, navigated by three figures and a car. The pattern of brisk lines, hard angles, and spots of bright color verges on the purely abstract.
