Here's a really interesting cityscape of Chinatown, which looks to be Chinatown in New York City. There's is so much going on in this wonderful painting - the traffic and the crowds and the signs. It's dark and raining. The car's head lights are nicely rendered. The whole colorful canvas creates a perfect slice of downtown at night.
The painting is signed R. Atkinson. On the back of the canvas is penciled in what looks like "Mrs. Atkinson" and a number - I think it's the framer's note - could be the artist or the wife of the artist. The stretcher for the canvas is marked Glendale, NY. The dimensions including the frame are 22 3/4" by 18 1/2" and the image itself is 19 1/2" by 15 1/2".
Note - the painting is darker in the first picture - it varies with the light. The overall look is brighter than this.
