A George Grosz New York Street Scene

George Grosz's watercolor technique fascinates me. Here we have a New York Street Scene featuring both broad areas of wet-on-wet watercolor work as well as a much dryer technique for dealing with details of brickwork, windows, and fire escapes. The foreground over the left third of the paper is rendered wet and loose with little attention to detail. The central staircase and facade serves as a transitional area. The right side features a vibrant urban landscape. And, oh, that car!
