"Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge" by Sue Graef, Acrylic on Canvas
40 x 20”
Acrylic on Canvas
Original Art Work
Description: This is a colorful Pop Art style painting of the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge which connects Staten Island to Brooklyn, New York. Having driven over it countess times, to and from Brooklyn, I was always happy to be the passenger so I could gaze up at it while going across. The artwork was created in vibrant hues of orange, green, purple and blue and may even be brighter than a David Hockney painting. It measures 40 x 20 x 1.5 inches, unframed, neatly painted edges and ready to hang on the wall with all the needed hardware attached. Professional quality acrylic is used on premium stretched canvas.
