Luce Center Label

Edward Bannister painted this landscape toward the end of his long career. The focus of the peaceful country scene is the break in the clouds. Light played a prominent role in many of Bannister’s works, reflecting a deep Christian faith that sustained him throughout his life. He found comfort in his long walks in the country in search of views that would make good paintings.
