Mount Monadnock was a familiar sight to Thayer long before he moved to Dublin, New Hampshire. He retained a memory of the majestic mountain from a youth spent in Keene, New Hampshire. Spring Hillside,one of his earliest views of Monadnock, is in striking contrast to the darker, brooding images of the mountain that filled his later canvases.
