Stone and Steel

STONE and STEEL: Paintings & Writings Celebrating the Bridges of New York City

Iron rainbow to the bright water bending: That’s how Derek Walcott describes a bridge in his poem of the same name. Walcott’s “The Bridge” is one of many literary evocations of bridges in this book honoring the presence, both literal and metaphorical, of New York’s famous spans… Bascove, an artist whose work can be found in the collections of the Museum of the City of New York and the Musee de Cherbourg… brings a passionate geometry to her paintings of the various bridges, evoking the exhilarating, fearsome beauty of these “iron rainbows.” – The Washington Post

Bascove… is a wonderfully fluid painter whose lines are reminiscent of the elegant yet muscular paintings of the Works Progress Administration muralists. Stone and Steel is elegantly and clearly a reflection of an artist’s style and personal interests and a beautiful addition to any library. – Communication Arts
