Evening

  • William J. Kaula, Evening, 1902, oil on canvas, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Mary B. Longyear, 1917.1.2

Luce Center Label

This image captures the last glimpses of light before darkness falls on a summer day. The luminous clouds and vast expanse of sky complement the comforting shadows of trees over a quiet homestead. William J. Kaula painted the greens, browns, and lavenders in closely related values that suggest the soft glow of twilight on a warm evening.
