Untitled (CityShip) - Manhattan

from the Goldstein Lawson Collection Contrast Group

A common compositional theme throughout several of Lawson's works in this collection is the contrasting of a small character against a larger, almost imposing background or subject.

The past and the present come together as an old ship finds its way to the harbor of a modern city.
