Did You Know?

This work depicts roughly 15 blocks of Lower Manhattan between Canal and 10th Streets.


Looking Along Broadway Towards Grace Church exemplifies the zany, cartoonlike sculptural environments of Red Grooms. Throughout his career, New York City has provided wonderfully rich subject matter for his work. In this animated scene, the artist focuses on the visual clutter of a lower Manhattan street near his studio. A three-dimensional caricature, this work features jutting buildings, garish street people, and aggressive cars, trucks, and buses, all vividly painted. With engaging wit and enormous energy Grooms captures urban life with rare good humor.
