I first saw this striking image of snowy New York in a Lexington Avenue gallery 30 years ago and liked it so much I persuaded a good friend to buy it for his house in Jersey. I have tracked it ever since and now will own it briefly. We research and write original biographies on all artists who are new to us, and this has revealed that Ribcowsky who had a stellar career in the United States and painted this in 1937 at the age of 57 while staying at the Beacon Hotel on the corner of Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue.
