Wall Street, New York, c. 1925

Not on Viewexpand_more

In his graphite drawing Wall Street, Arnold Ronnebeck’s captures the dramatic visual effect of a skyscraper-lined streetscape in the heart of the financial district in Lower Manhattan. From deep shadows to brilliant light, the scene emphasizes the unrelenting geometry of modern urban architecture. In the far distance is the spire of the historic Trinity Church, a Gothic-revival Episcopal parish church completed in 1846.
