Artist Jane Dickson’s Portrait of New York

Artist Jane Dickson’s Portrait of New York

From 1978 to 2008, artist Jane Dickson lived and worked in Times Square, a neighborhood long known for its myriad attractions, neon carnival lights, and peep show culture. During this time, she photographed her daily life with the intention of portraying these moments in her work. In the years to follow, Jane’s paintings of Times Square would be exhibited in New York’s finest galleries including The Met, the Whitney, and the Brooklyn Museum, among others. Here, the artist shares a portrait of New York in the ’80s, captured in the streets around her then home.
