Scenes of New York City: The Elie and Sarah Hirschfeld Collection features selections from the Elie and Sarah Hirschfeld Collection, a promised gift of paintings, watercolors, prints, drawings, and sculptures to the New-York Historical Society. The Hirschfelds are prominent philanthropists and art collectors who have been dedicated to collecting art that portrays New York City and the people who make it unique. This traveling exhibition presents 115 works from the Hirschfelds’ donation. A visual love letter to New York, it depicts vivid snapshots of the City’s most beloved icons — its buildings, bridges, skyscrapers, parks, landmarks, and people — by nationally and internationally prominent artists, including Theresa Bernstein, Marc Chagall, Willem de Kooning, Rauol Dufy, Keith Haring, Childe Hassam, David Hockney, Edward Hopper, Jacob Lawrence, Fernand Leger, Reginald Marsh, LeRoy Neiman, Georgia O’Keeffe, Norman Rockwell, and Andy Warhol. The exhibition includes a catalogue with an essay about the sweeping history of New York City, an interview with Elie Hirschfeld, and scholarly entries on each work.
