Credit Line: THE DOROTHY AND HERBERT VOGEL COLLECTION: FIFTY WORKS FOR FIFTY STATES, a joint initiative of the Trustees of the Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection and the National Gallery of Art, with generous support of the National Endowment for the Arts and the Institute of Museum and Library Services, 2008
About: This small painting is based on a larger one, San Francisco Chinatown Window, 1976, in the collection of the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. Because the collectors, Dorothy and Herbert Vogel especially liked the Corcoran painting, Clark made a copy and gave it to them as a New Year's gift in 1980.
In 1974, the artist spoke about the "human element" in his window paintings: "Looking at windows, for example, the appearance of the shades, the position of the curtains and the blinds, suggests something about the life inside."
