Lowell Birge Harrison (1854-1929): Bryant Park at Evening, New York, oil on canvas, 30 x 24 inches, Private Collection In 'Bryant Park at Evening, New York', Birge Harrison captures a rare moment of tranquility in the city, synthesizing his understanding of Tonalism and Impressionism. The cool serene scene is brought to life with the warm glow from the lights of the El and in the apartment windows. The artist also shows here the period architecture of New York City drawing the viewer into the painting as if one were walking on the sidewalk. The beautifully painted sky above, with flashes of orange, hints at the coming sun after the storm.
