Dublin Pond, New Hampshire

This painting was a wedding present for Abbott Thayer’s friend the architect Stanford White. It is a view near the artist’s home in Dublin, New Hampshire, and Thayer himself thought the finished painting a very successful picture of the sunshine striking down on the bottom of a summer lake.” Thayer’s many outdoor scenes of Dublin reflect his passion for nature, an interest that also surfaces in his portraits and allegorical scenes, which are often set in New Hampshire’s green fields.
