New York at Night

A theme that never tires in art is the spectacular skyline of New York City. This fabulous 60s statement is by an American artist named Edith Montlack. The abstract cityscape is achieved by a process consisting of applying and removing oil paint with a palette knife and adding texture with many brush strokes. The color combination is particularly pleasing with shades of teal and highlights of red and orange. Look closely and you can see through the dusky haze a hint of the Empire State Building in the center of the canvas.
