Coney Island

"LUNA": This single word was enough to signal to any early twentieth-century viewer that he was looking at an image of the mechanized wonder of Coney Island. The Russian-born Louis Lozowick was one of many modern artists drawn to the exciting light show of Coney Island's Luna Park, known as the Electric Eden. He combined cropped and abstracted elements of this leisure mecca's most famous attractions, including the Ferris wheel, the steeplechase ridge, and exotic illuminated minarets.
