We officially welcome winter on December 22, and there’s no better way to greet the new season than enjoying festive art in the galleries. Take a look at these 10 images for winter, all currently on display in the Museum’s galleries.
Perhaps no American Painter has been more associated with winter landscapes than the Impressionist John Henry Twachtman. When he died in 1902, his "New York Times" obituary declared, "No one has surpassed him in the painting of Winter landscapes, for while he knew how to render the delicate colors of a tree and shrub against their white surroundings, his brush had the power to suggest the softness and fleecy quality of snow which has fallen recently and still clings to bough and stalk." // On view in the American Galleries // "Horseneck Brook" (1890s) John Henry Twachtman (American, 1853-1902), oil and wash on academy board. Museum purchase with funds provided by Mrs. Bernard Steiner. 1983.32.
