With her uniform’s blue veil billowing out behind her, a nanny pushes a baby carriage through the streets of New York. Looking down from an upper window, we join her as inhabitants of the metropolis and its rows of apartment buildings, sprawling outward and upward in this era of progress and prosperity. The unusual cropping of this scene, with the figures just entering our view, suggests the fragmented and lonely character of this anonymous urban world, a frequent theme in Edward Hopper’s work.
