Description Ernest Fiene depicts Fifth Avenue looking down from 57th Street with an unobstructed view of the Empire State Building.
It's the absence of newer glass and steel architecture that gives the painting the charm of old New York.
The artist captures a moody blue sky as light bounces back from the clouds.
This contrasts with the somewhat haunting yellow glow given to the pedestrians and street traffic.
The people have somewhat of a zombie quality akin to George Tooker.
Styles / Movements Contemporary, Modernism, Post Impressionism
