Central Park and the San Remo
American: c. 1930s-1940s
Watercolor on paper
18 x 12 inches
Watercolor landscape from a path on the west side of Central Park, looking south toward a pedestrian bridge and the two towers of the San Remo. The sunlit planes of the architectural elements contrast with the rich green foliage of the trees and shrubs. A few small figures walking through the park almost blend with their surroundings. The San Remo is an apartment building on Central Park West between 74th and 75th Streets. It was completed in the early 1930s, which helps date this painting.
Condition: Generally very good with the usual overall light toning and wear. Formerly matted along the outer edge, this area now with glue residue and mat toning, can be rematted out when framed. Remnants from former hinges verso, not affecting the front.
