An addition to the ongoing “Bar Paintings Series” that begun in the late 1970s. Cenedella paints In the Bag at P.J. Carney's (1997), which is one of his favorite bars. Conveniently next to the Art Student's League where he taught for years, this bar is frequented by an eclectic group of individuals, including artists, businesspeople, tourists and more.
The painting still hangs inside the bar today, along with Lithographs of many other Cenedella works. You can see it at 906 7th Avenue, New York, NY 10019.
