This print captures a moment from everyday life more common in the early 20th century than today. While the street musician is still found in high traffic urban areas— particularly in cities like New York, Paris, or New Orleans— very few make a living anymore by playing street music.

The subject is focused and “in the moment,” distinguishing this scene from art of an earlier era when the subjects would have appeared more formally posed. Images of everyday Americans came to play a role in cementing the bonds between them over time as they recognized themselves and their interests in these casual depictions.
