"I have been painting the Williamsburg Savings Bank Building and its place in the Brooklyn landscape for about ten years with some frustration. Many of these paintings want to be big, but their size has been limited by the size of my studio, located in the front bedroom of our Brooklyn townhouse. Ironically, since moving my studio to a barn in the Hudson Valley, these Brooklyn paintings have finally begun to live up to their potential." - Robert Goldstrom, 2016
