Framed painting titled Jumpers by Leonard Rosenfeld. The painting depicts two gray towers in the center, each with an image of a splayed white figure tumbling down. An American flag, in abstract form, surrounds the towers, along with other blocks of color. On the upper right is a dark silhouette if an airplane (missing its cockpit) aimed toward the building.
Artist and lower Manhattan resident Leonard Rosenfeld witnessed the events at the World Trade Center on 9/11. He was deeply affected by what he saw, particularly the victims who fell from the burning buildings. He created this painting in response to what he witnessed.
