John Rutherford Boyd
In the Subway

1928

About

The view of a crammed New York City subway car circa 1928 is depicted in wide-angle vision. The foreground figures are rendered with the type of lens distortion that is common today in selfies. Rutherford Boyd was a magazine art director and was very familiar with photography. In a sense, this is an early photorealism work because it's based on a photography sensibility. Signed and dated "RUTHERFORD BOYD 1928" u.l., titled on a label from Hirschl & Adler Galleries, Inc., New York, affixed to the frame backing. Watercolor, ink, and gouache on paper/board, sight size 20 x 28 1/2 in. (50.8 x 72.4 cm), framed. Beautiful Art Deco Gold Leaf Frame
