The Brooklyn Bridge: Variation on an Old Theme

1939

Joseph Stella, The Brooklyn Bridge: Variation on an Old Theme, 1939. Oil on canvas, 70 × 42 in. (177.8 × 106.7 cm). Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; purchase  42.15
Joseph Stella moved to the United States from a small mountain village in Italy and became fascinated with the modern technology of New York City—particularly the skyscrapers, subways, and bridges. He especially liked the Brooklyn Bridge and its sweeping cables, glittering lights, bustling traffic, and spectacular views. Stella made six paintings of the Brooklyn Bridge. This painting shows one of the bridge’s stone towers, looking across to Manhattan, along with another view of the bridge from a distance.
