Taking Stock of Our Cities and Towns
BY MAX GILLIES
It’s high time to celebrate the robust health of “cityscape” painting. Scenes of urban life — viewed from every angle and in all kinds of weather and light — are being created by a lively community of artists who work in diverse mediums, manners, and moods. Just as encouraging, the resulting pictures are selling well, according to galleries nationwide.
It would seem that, running right alongside the boom in outdoor landscape painting highlighted in this magazine’s sister publication, PleinAir, there is a universe of people who want to look closely at — and find the strange beauty in — the harder-edged places where so many of us live or work. Meadows and neon signs both have charms, a fact more and more art collectors are discovering.
Now consider collecting a cityscape for yourself.
