9780300081992: Painting the Town: Cityscapes of New York (Paintings from the Museum of the City of New York)

Drawn from the collection of the Museum of the City of New York, these urban scene paintings reflect the shifting moods, restless energy and harsh contradictions of the metropolis. The paintings, of harbours, skylines, festivities, street scenes and buildings, cover nearly 200 years.

From Library Journal:

What is it about New York City that makes it a constant source of inspiration for the artistic imagination? This book, the catalog of a recent exhibition at New York's PaineWebber Art Gallery, examines two centuries of reflections upon the ever-changing nature of the city. Using the extensive collection of the Museum of the City of New York as it resource, the work addresses the entire range of city images in scholarly essays and elegant illustrations. These latter, alas, are not all in color, but that may be why the book is affordable. The familiar skylines and the harbor scenes are here, and so too are the early genre paintings, the topographical works, the Ash Can School, and the monumental murals of the W.P.A. The changing faces of the city are reflected as well in the fine essays, which trace the energy and variety that is New York City, from the outings in the parks to the fight for recognition and acceptance in the barrios of today. A fine catalog and an equally fine acknowledgment of the grand collection held by the Museum of the City of New York.DPaula Frosch, Metropolitan Museum of Art Lib., New York
