Artist's description:

This painting portrays Seth Thomas clock . Some timepieces themselves are timeless. 5th Avenue has no less than three historic street clocks: at 23rd (200 Fifth), 59th (783 Fifth) and this 19 foot tall Seth Thomas clock at 522 installed in 1907. It originally stood a block away at the American Trust Company building at 43rd Street; when that company merged with the Guaranty Trust Company in the 1930s the clock was moved north to its present locale. A glance at the ornamentation and detail bespeaks the era when it was made.The clock has “IIII” instead of “IV” for 4, normal in clock faces. It’s unknown how this tradition arose. Painting medium is acrylic paint.
