|Distance--Brooklyn Bridge, |
|Christmas in New York, Robert Finale--cityscapes aiming to capture the essence of the city while only referencing the landmarks without dwelling on them exclusively.|
|Two artists, one city, two radically different approaches.|
|Innsbruck Seen from the North, circa 1496, Albrecht Durer|
|The Little Street, 1657-58, |
(oil on canvas), Jan Vermeer
|Note that the colors differ drastically in the two images above. The upper one would seem to be the more accurate.|
