Twachtman painted numerous views of the hemlock-lined pool on his Connecticut farm, capturing it at all times of day and in different seasons. Unlike other artists, Twachtman lived in the country year-round: “I feel more and more contented with the isolation of country life…we are nearer to nature—I can see how necessary it is to live always in the country.”
