The Prudential Center is both a popular destination and one of the iconic skyscrapers in the Boston city skyline. Passing through this shopping center, you may notice images of other equally famous Boston landmarks on display at the Boston Private Bank! Artist member Matthew McCosco is showing his watercolor paintings of Boston landmarks—from Fairmont Copley to the Old State House—at the Boston Private Bank until November. See some of his paintings on display below!
Matthew McCosco, Fairmont Copley, watercolor, 23 x 19”
Did you know that Fairmont Copley was designed by Henry Janeway Hardenbergh, who also designed the Plaza Hotel in New York City? The Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel was even named after American painter John Singleton Copley, who is also the Copley Society of Art’s namesake!
Matthew McCosco, Fenway, watercolor, 19 x 23”
Built in 1912, Fenway Park is the oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball. With notable features such as the Green Monster, the lone red seat, and “the triangle,” Fenway Park is a treasured stadium for baseball fans, history buffs, and Boston natives.
Matthew McCosco, North End, watercolor, 19 x 23”
The North End neighborhood in Boston is well-known for its Italian eateries. Though the neighborhood was home to African American, Irish, and Jewish communities, the North End has been associated with Italian immigrants and culture since the 20th century.
Matthew McCosco, Old State House, watercolor, 23 x 19”
This designated National Historic Landmark, the Old State House, is well-known for its associations with the Revolutionary War and as Boston’s City Hall. For example, in 1770, the Boston Massacre occurred outside of the building’s front doors, and on July 18, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was proclaimed from the balcony!
