Lot Essay

"Estes is the poet/painter of New York City. He has painted Venice, Chicago, and Paris, but most of his paintings are of Manhattan, his home. One can recognize the Ansonia Hotel, Lincoln Center, certain streets on the Upper West Side and in the Village, even the Guggenheim Museum, and this is fine. But it is really New York City light that is the true subject and the key."
—J. Perreault, "Richard Estes", in Richard Estes: The Complete Paintings 1966-1985, New York, 1986, p. 11
