From John Dos Passos to Paul Morand, from Edith Wharton to Henry James, New York lends itself to all forms of writing. And many others, like Walt Whitman, Francis Scott Fitzgerald, Arthur Miller, Tom Wolfe or Paul Auster, have dreamed and fantasized about this city, making it the theater of their most intimate explorations. But if New York has acquired the status of literary myth, this city is also that of painters, from George Bellows and Colin Campbell Cooper to Joan Sloan, Childe Hassam and Edward Hopper, who each knew how to sublimate its architecture, light, and atmosphere. This illustrated anthology draws on literature and painting, from the 17th century to the present day, to showcase the beauty of New York, from its origins as a small Dutch village to its status as “capital of the world.” This dialogue between selected quotes and famous paintings reveals a New York that is sometimes flamboyant and prestigious, sometimes mysterious and poetic, in an uninterrupted variation of atmospheres and emotions.
