This is a little study done on cardboard in oil. Same subject as last one only I've put the people closer together...as they actually were when I saw them. They are close to each other and close to us...both geographically, socially, historically, and psychologically. As Franklin D. Roosevelt reminded a convention of the Daughters of the American Revolution,
"Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionaries".
Everywhere immigrants have enriched and strengthened the fabric of American life. As Walt
"These States are the amplest poem,
Here is not merely a nation but
a teeming Nation of nations."
These two quotes are lifted directly from "A NATION OF IMMIGRANTS" by John F. Kennedy.
