Note: Armand Trivilini is known for his impressionistic depictions of New York City, often featuring atmospheric skies and scattered rainfall. In this scene, he paints Worth Square in the Flatiron District, placing the viewer on 5th Avenue facing north towards 24th Street. On the left, Trivilini includes one of the city’s historic sidewalk clocks. First introduced in the late 1800s, these cast-iron street clocks were typically installed by businesses as a novel form of advertising. This double-sided clock at 200 Fifth Avenue was created by the Hecla Iron Works and installed in 1909, replacing an earlier version, and designated a New York City landmark in 1981.
