Broadway Looking North, Trinity Church - New York City1930 by Theodore 'Ted' Kautzky
Circa 1930s. In this painting Kautzky demonstrates his interest in the architecture of New York city, looking north on Broadway, with the spire of Trinity Church visible on the left. The early automobiles and lamp posts preserve a glimpse into New York's historical past. Ted Kautzky was an architect, watercolorist, teacher and author of books on painting techniques. Trained as an architect at the Royal University in Hungary, he emigrated to New York in 1923, where he was employed as an architect for the New York City Parks Department. Later, he taught art at the Pratt Institute, New York University, the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Toronto. Kautzky favored the watercolor medium and mastered the ability to use it to render light, reflections, color and texture.
