The Statue of Liberty's Gaze
Lithograph print titled The Statue of Liberty's Gaze, created by Brenda Berkman (b. 1951). The print depicts the lower Manhattan skyline with the One World Trade Center building prominent on the right. The Statue of Liberty is on the left in the foreground facing the city skyline. The print is signed.
This print is part of a series titled 36 Views of One World Trade Center, created by 9/11 first responder and FDNY member Brenda Berkman as she documented the construction of the new One World Trade Center building from 36 vantage points around the city. For Berkman, printmaking became a path through the trauma she had experienced on 9/11 and in the subsequent months that she spent at Ground Zero.
