A Street Corner in Paterson, New Jersey
I fell hard for a painting pictured in yesterday’s New York Times to the extent that I emailed the gallery to find out about it. The artist is Henry Martin Gasser (1909-1981) who lived and painted in New Jersey his entire life. I’m pretty sure I can’t afford this painting so tried to do my version. You definitely can’t achieve in watercolor and gouache what he achieved in oil.
I am waiting to hear from the gallery but I’m thinking the painting must be thousands of dollars. I love it because it pictures my home town back when it was young and beautiful. Here is the gallery’s advertisement:
