Luce Center Label

Arthur Turnbull Hill painted several images of Amagansett, Long Island, a popular subject for nineteenth-century American landscape painters. He used bright, translucent colors in this painting to evoke the fresh atmosphere that follows a thunderstorm. The dramatic clouds of the receding storm fill most of the canvas, dwarfing the tiny figures on the beach.
