One of few female artists to achieve success in the 1920s, Elsie Driggs was included in the first Whitney Biennial in 1932. Her painting Pittsburgh was inspired by a childhood memory of a view from a train window, riding past the city’s steel mills at night. This work is on view in the exhibition The Whitney's Collection: Selections from 1900 to 1965. #WhitneyCollection

No exaggeration! My parents and I drove through Pittsburgh in 1953. The smog and soot were out of control!!
