About this artwork

In this nocturnal view taken from the artist’s apartment window, one of the Art Institute of Chicago’s largest mezzotints, blinding lights emanating from Yankee Stadium offer the only sign of life in the big city. McPherson’s iconic cityscape took him over a year to produce, and in its elegant simplicity offers an Edward Hopper-like ode to the loneliness of crowds.
