New York is a city of dreamers. But I wonder what the girl in John J. Soble’s 1936 painting is thinking about.
Her leg is kicked up in a youthful pose, while the woman holding the chair behind her seems older. A train is coming down the tracks as laundry hangs from a roof in the distance. She might be a neighborhood girl, but big city dreams beckon.
