The bottom of an art deco building, the
Empire State Building silhouetted in a winter sky, the Plaza
gleaming white above the trees that border Fifth Avenue and Central
Park. Throw in some period autos, gas lamps, a carriage, and
a panoply of color that captures the vibrancy of the city during
a winter twilight, you have the essence of Patrick Antonelle's
art in one image. New York, nostalgia, peace, beauty, human activity
and spirit are all gleaned in this magnificent picture.
