End of Winter

  • John Henry Twachtman, End of Winter, after 1889, oil on canvas, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of William T. Evans, 1909.7.65

Luce Center Label

Twachtman drew inspiration from his seventeen acres of land in Greenwich, Connecticut, and his paintings of the property express the emotional and spiritual comfort he found there. This image describes the beginning of the seasonal transition from winter to spring. Twachtman depicted bare trees and an icy, swollen brook, but allowed the brown primed canvas to show through his thinly applied paint so that a feeling of warmth and regeneration could emerge.
