Chuzo Tamotsu, Gas Tank and Flowers, c.1938

A vase of flowers on the windowsill, a cat standing next to it, a downtown New York tenement outside the window, and a huge tank on the roof. The composition captures a glimpse of the life of ordinary people in the downtown area. This work is identical to one exhibited at the Second Annual Exhibition of the American Artists’ Congress in 1938.
