This chapter narrates George Luks’s foray into publications like Vanity Fair and New Yorker. While he was still working at the Verdict, Luks found time to undertake freelance drawings for Broadway Magazine, a popular journal laced with images of leggy chorines along with more staid reviews of dramas and interviews with leading stars. Although he only contributed three drawings, each of these three highlighted a unique aspect of his talent and gave further evidence of his abilities and wide-ranging interests. Among these drawings, the first, Night Scene in Herald Square, Broadway and Thirty-fourth Street (March 1899) remained the most interesting. This was just the beginning. The rest of the chapter narrates the events that transpired and led up to Luks increased interest in modern art and his journey into participating in its world.
