Maira Kalman Optimism

Publication: New Yorker
Image Type: Illustration
Date: July 22nd, 2013
Description: The Optimism of Breakfast

I just found this image for sale on Condé Nast’s online print shop.

I  l o v e the work of Maira Kalman, and to me it’s a direct line to New York City, the situation described above even more so.

It made me look up The Cup and Saucer Café, and see, this is the feeling, exactly this shot. Looking at the women in the picture, it could be a study/snapshot by Kalman herself, just before she immortalizes them in gouache 🙂

Looking forward to my breakfast in NYC later this year!
