A fine and rare view of Central Park, looking towards the east..

"John Bachmann presents Central Park as an expansive, aesthetic oasis teeming with luxuriant gardens and fairy-tale structures in the midst of New York City. Bachmann reduces the city itself to a thin line of background buildings so as to give weight and focus to the beauty of the park...”

"The observation tower at the southwest corner of the lower reservoir is visible in the left foreground. In the center are the Water Terrace, the Bethesda Fountain, and the Mall. Fifth Avenue is seen at the top of the image, where the turrets, domes, and steeples of the city's dense line of buildings lend a further touch of enchantment...". Deak.

This view is seldom seen in the market.

This is one of the great views of Central Park just ahead of the Centennial celebration.
