Item no. 28486
" The Daily News Strike"
This composition centers on a newsstand with a sign proclaiming, "I don't sell Daily News." On the left side of the canvas picketers face off with the police outside the Daily News building while cutaway views reveal "scabs" and managers working within. Fasanella devotes most of the right side of the picture of the huge Brooklyn plant, where idle trucks sit outside and more "scabs" run the presses inside.
Painting by Ralph Fasanella from the collection of Eva Fasanella.
