Times Square NYC Signed Oil on Canvas - Mid Century

Nothing could be more quintessentially New York than this wonderful view of Times Square painted in 1969. A dreamlike landscape with swirling bright lights and neon, dark buildings looming above the bustle with only billboards quaintly lit by a row of floodlights... this was before all the giant video screens. If you love New York like I do, this painting will be a nostalgic treat.

Your eye is drawn toward the silhouetted statue of George M. Cohan in the distance being admired by a lone figure. This statue still stands at the southern tip of Father Duffy Square overlooking Times Square. Today, the TKTS booth, already a NY landmark in its own right, would be to the statue's back and directly in our view. This wonderful monument by George John Lober was sited in 1959, and this painting shows it only ten years later.

CONDITION is good with a couple of small older wax repairs that you probably wouldn't notice if they weren't pointed out... you can see one in the photo of the signature in the light salmon field at the top just to the left of the black and red spot... the other, smaller, in the dark gray block of color at the top left. I only noticed these because you can see them on the back of the canvas. Signed at the lower right, alas I have tried and tried to decipher the signature. Measures 17 1/2" x 21 1/2" overall with a sight size of 15 1/2" x 19 1/2". The painting on its stretchers without the frame is 16" x 20".

Looking at this painting will take you telescoping back through the years to the heyday of NY theater and George M. Cohan. Enjoy! And give my regards to Broadway.
