Battle of Lights

"Battle of Lights, Coney Island" was painted by Joseph Stella in 1913. The medium used was oil on canvas. It can currently be found the Yale University Art Gallery. It shows the park at Coney island which is located on a board walk with a ferris wheel in the center. It colorful nature is pleasing to the eye. The chaos seems to come together to form a carnival like theme similar to the one that can be seen a Coney Island. I personally have been to Coney Island and although it has changed over the years I like the depiction Stella has made.
