Captured forever, a scene repeated at the train stations across America a million or more times. Painted in the Los Angeles train station when the passenger train was king. The Red Caps knew what was happening up and down the line of every express run, and kept the gossip current at all the stops.
Patrick was obviously interested in trains and painted as well as lithographed several pieces of the subject. Another well known "train" painting (oil) is the "Santa Fe Goat". "Red Cap Gossip was shown at the Jake Zeitlin Galleries, one-man show in Spring of 1940.
