"His urban tower pictures are tours
de force..remarkable: the visual splendor and scale
of New York are transported into the gallery- the
sparkling lights, the shadowy interiors, the frozen

in painting comes through the play of light over surfaces,

Day painted and photographed many New
York City buildings many of them while the buildings
were under construction, his paintings capture a time
in history. Lucien Day has painted landscapes and
portraits. Here is an excerpt on perspective from
the Hudson River Museum book; The World is Round "
The earth is curved beneath our feet. The biosphere
encases it, and each of us lives in a world of visual
experience, part earth, part biosphere, something
of the free multifaceted endlessness of reality is
suggested by the curve..." Lucien Day
