Landscape in sepia: Trees with Brook

Collections: 
Classification: 
Date: 
ca. 1854
Medium: 
Sepia oil on canvas
Dimensions: 
Overall: 37 1/8 x 41 1/4 in. (94.3 x 104.8 cm) Frame: 37 3/4 x 46 3/4 x 4 in. (37 3/4 x 46 3/4 x 4 in.)
Credit Line: 
Gift of Nora Durand Woodman
Object Number: 
1930.12
Gallery Label: 
This study is roughly blocked-in monochrome by the artist. No finished exhibition painting has come to light that relates to this sepia study which may depict a subject near Jackson Falls in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Durand's energized and calligraphic brushwork in this remarkable monochromatic landscape is a tour de force of both drawing and painting.
