A Couple Turns of the Century
With the peaks of PPG Place in the background, Seward Johnson’s statue “A Turn of the Century,” in PPG Plaza, a 20-foot-tall, 14,440-pound monumental bronze sculpture based on an 1883 life-sized painting by impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir, “Dance at Bougival.” I took the photo at twilight but the sky still has quite a bit of light. The modern glass towers of PPG Place tinted blue by the sky are a wonderful foil the the 19th-century Parisian dancers with even a locust tree lit by a colored light as if they are in an outdoor gathering place at night.
