Toshi Shimizu, Ice Cream Pavilion (House at Dyckman), c. 1922 (1922 Independent Artists Exhibition)

This work depicts the area near Inwood in northern
Manhattan, where Toshi Shimizu lived at the time. Against a
background of rows of tenements, a parent and child
shopping at an ice cream store, a figure walking his dog on
the left, and construction workers at a building site reflect the
daily life of a residential neighborhood.
