New York Paintings
This special installation features four monumentally scaled paintings of New York scenes by contemporary realist painter Stone Roberts (b. 1951). Combining the influence and rich techniques of old masters paintings with a distinctively 21st-century eye, the artist depicts moments of life in the city against the backdrop of some of its iconic spaces. The centerpiece of the installation is the newly completed work “Grand Central Terminal: An Early December Noon in the Main Concourse” (2009-12), which captures in minute detail the interior of the epic building and the humanity of the New York characters who traverse it.
