John Tuoktman «Cottage in winter» (1891)

Cottage disappears behind thin veil of snow. Naked trees inlaid with frost. Pink shadows on the snow. It is either evening or sunless morning. Uncertain shades. Translucent twigs. Cold. Cold outside.

Джон Туоктмен «Загородный дом зимой» (1891)

Коттедж исчезает за тонкой вуалью снега. Обнаженные деревья украшены морозом. Розовые тени на снегу. Сейчас либо вечер, либо пасмурное утро. Нечеткие тени. Прозрачные ветви. Холод. Холод повсюду.

As one of the best-known members of the New Hope school of Impressionists in Pennsylvania, Daniel Garber studied the effects of light, both in overcast and sunny landscapes, to create his lyrical compositions. This painting depicts a view across the canal to the town of New Hope, which is bathed in sunlight.
