For the centenary of the mythical New York Public Library, at the corner of 42nd Street and 5th Avenue, Eric Drooker pays a singular tribute to it on the cover of the New Yorker on May 23rd 2011, and in particular to the lions that adorn its entrance. Drooker imagines them roaring in a future where nature will have regained its rights. In the 1930s, these two sculptures by Edward Clark Potter were renamed Patience and Courage (Fortitude), to pay tribute to the efforts made by New Yorkers after the Great Depression.
Framed, this illustration will look wonderful in a an entrance hall, a living room or a bedroom.
