The Market Woman

Jerome Myers

American Art

Myers often depicted the streets, river piers, parks, and playgrounds of New York’s Lower East Side—a neighborhood then populated mainly by poor European immigrants. He especially enjoyed the exceptional energy and vitality of the open-air markets, writing that “the immigrants merge here with New York.”
