Note: After moving to New York, Campbell established a studio space in MacDougal Alley, and in 1918 became a charter member of the Whitney Studio Club at 147 West 4th Street. In 1929, he moved his studio to 3 Washington Square North, in a building inhabited by other notable artists, including Edward Hopper. The vantage point of this painting is just steps from his studio.
