A selection of approximately twenty winter landscape paintings from the collection of Thomas Clark will be featured in this exhibition. In the early twentieth century, winter scenes emerged as a major genre for American landscape painters. The winter season provided the ideal subject for artists who sought to express the special qualities of a local place through the luminescent effects of bright, winter light and its reflective colors. Major practitioners of the winter landscape aesthetic will include Aldro Thompson Hibbard, Hobart Nichols, Ernest Lawson, Arthur James Emery Powell, Arthur Clifton Goodwin, and Walter Koeniger. The paintings are a promised gift to The Hyde Collection.

Organized by The Hyde Collection and curated by Erin B. Coe, Chief Curator.
