A founding member of Collaborative Projects, the NYC artist’s group responsible for the landmark 1980 Times Square Show, Dickson is a formidable talent able to depict the grit of New York with a sublime grace akin to Edward Hopper and Rockwell Kent. Her works are held in numerous museums, including The Whitney Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and The Brooklyn Museum.

This untitled work from 1980 is classic Jane Dickson—a moody, inky black night in a rain-slicked downtown New York. The traffic is thin in the late hours, and one can almost smell the sulfur from the rain drops striking the asphalt. —Courtesy of Doyle
