“Twilight in New York”

I’m not sure where this is, but Italian-American painter Alessandro Guaccimanni lived near Madison Square in the 1890s.

This ultra-fashionable neighborhood in Gilded Age New York is the setting of some of his other equally haunting and moody works. But it could be Union Square, even beside Central Park.

    Wonder if he wanted his unknown isolation to remain. His solitary paintings are unique, that’s for sure.

    Good point. I think the ambiguity makes the painting more captivating.

    What an overlooked work of art and local history. Just gorgeous. Thanks for this.
