Original oil painting by a famous Russian Jewish American artist Maurice Kish (1895-1987). Maurice Kish was born in Dvinsk, he immigrated to the United States in 1910s, where he studied at the Cooper Union and the National Academy of Design. His work is dedicated to depicting scenes of everyday reality - cities and workers. Attenuated by his distinctly modern style, his paintings are a powerful image of his times. Maurice Kish's works are in major museums, such as the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Jewish Museum.
The painting is a wonderful scene of New York City, showing a bustling river street with cars, boats, people on factory pipes puffing in the distance. Lively, dynamic work!
