    BCC Library Commission No. 10: The Kingsbridge Armory

    Today we're sharing the tenth of twenty-two paintings (all of them views of The Bronx) by Bronx artist Daniel Hauben for the new Robert A. M. Stern Library on the Bronx Community College campus. The panel is titled "The Kingsbridge Armory" (below) and takes inspiration from several paintings Hauben has done of the area throughout his career.

    Hauben says:

     

    "How many passersby have wondered why there is a massive medieval fortress in the middle of The Bronx. I certainly don't have an answer for them, but as I am always looking to include the quirky urban anomalies in my paintings, the Kingsbridge Armory is a subject I've worked with on many occasions over the years. The sheer size of the building with it's pronounced shapes, help bestow a sense of grandeur to the neighborhood."

    We couldn't agree more! We can almost see a king and queen at the top of the tower! We're inspired to stop by the armory and take another look. See below for more of Hauben's Armory paintings. Which is your favorite?
