Farm by a Stream
(American School, Late 19th Century)
Oil on canvas, signed with monogram in lower right corner, “HR.”

This American Impressionist landscape of a farm at dusk uses color with great effect in terms of formal composition and mood. The bold use of yellow for the sky, scumbled with purple clouds, is reflected in the water below, creating bands of light that seemingly expand beyond the painting’s dimensions. The rich green of the woods and purple-brown of the farm buildings meanwhile contrast sharply to the stream and sky, and give this rural landscape a still, almost secretive quality.

Painting size: 8” x 11.5” Frame size: 12” x 16”
