Luce Center Label

Max Weyl painted many images that emphasized the beauty of the landscape around Washington, D.C. Hill and Marshland appears to show an area along the banks of the Potomac River, which runs from West Virginia through the Appalachian Mountains to the Chesapeake Bay. The warm tones of green and brown emphasize the rich marshland vegetation, and the thick brushstrokes evoke the soft, damp earth.
