Nevinson first visited New York in 1919 and was immediately impressed by the city’s architecture, declaring that the city was ‘built for me’. He made numerous sketches during his visit.
New York-an Abstraction was painted in London after he returned from New York and before he returned for a second exhibition. The painting depicts an imaginary section of the elevated railway running through Manhattan. His next exhibition received a poor reception which may have contributed to a to Nevinson’s disaffection with the city and his decision to change the title of the painting in 1925 to its current title Soul of the Soulless City.
