Coney Island
"LUNA": This single word was enough to signal to any early twentieth-century viewer that he was looking at an image of the mechanized wonder of Coney Island. The Russian-born Louis Lozowick was one of many modern artists drawn to the exciting light show of Coney Island's Luna Park, known as the Electric Eden. He combined cropped and abstracted elements of this leisure mecca's most famous attractions, including the Ferris wheel, the steeplechase ridge, and exotic illuminated minarets.

Artist: Louis Lozowick, American, born Russia, 1892-1973
Medium: Casein on paper
Dates: 1935
Dimensions: 13 1/4 x 9 3/4 in. (33.7 x 24.8cm)

"A portrait is not a likeness. The moment an emotion or fact is transformed into a photograph it is no longer a fact but an opinion. There is no such thing as inaccuracy in a photograph. All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth." - Richard Avedon
