street art

This is up on a building in the East Village,
appropriately near Cooper Union. It reminds
me of something (French), but—duh—I can't quite
place it. Any help would be kindly appreciated.


  1. Um, how about Monet's Impression, soleil levant, Alexa ~ maybe a weensy bit evocative of it?

    I love that "frame"!

  2. I like how the hands hanging the painting are included.

  3. Dang! Kenju beat me to it. Looks like Rene rowing to NYC

    Neat. I like the way the air conditioner blends in!

  4. Yes, Rene Magritte! I knew it was all about the hat but just couldn't place it.
    I see your point too, Shell.
    Cali -- me too!
    Bibi -- I had a feeling you would notice the air conditioner.

  5. I love the A.C. sticking out of it! It really does add a nice touch. This is very cool, great catch Alexa.


Thanks, merci, grazie, danke, hvala, gracias, spasibo, shukran, dhanyavaad, salamat, arigato, and muito obrigado for your much-appreciated comments.
