There are hundreds of works of art all over the Memorial Art Gallery in Rochester, NY. Here are just a few of the ones I call Americana. This illustration is of course by Norman Rockwell for a cover of the Saturday Evening Post. He had borrowed a real railcar in his home town and most of the characters in the painting we local townspeople that were posing for him.
This painting is called “Boomtown” and was painted in 1920’s by Thomas Hart Benton. There is an amazing amount of activity in this painting and it has an unusual high perspective.
Photographed at ISO 2500 with a Canon 5D Mark III.
