New York and New Yorkers in the Night

New York and New Yorkers in the Night

George Bellows, Edward Hopper, Martin Lewis, Louis Lozowick, Christopher Nevinson, Joseph Pennell and John Sloan.

"And New York is the most beautiful city in the world? It is not far from it. No urban night is like the night there…. Squares after squares of flame, set up and cut into the aether. Here is our poetry, for we have pulled down the stars to our will." __ Ezra Pound

The artist is the person who makes life more interesting or beautiful, more understandable or mysterious, or probably, in the best sense, more wonderful.
