Landscape

Collections: 
Classification: 
Date: 
ca. 1855
Medium: 
Oil on canvas
Dimensions: 
Overall: 24 x 16 3/4 in. ( 61 x 42.5 cm ) Frame: 33 1/2 x 26 1/2 x 3 1/2 in. (85.1 x 67.3 x 8.9 cm)
Credit Line: 
Gift of Nora Durand Woodman
Object Number: 
1932.26
Gallery Label: 
Known collectively as Durand's "Studies from Nature," these vivid landscape paintings were painted over a span of more than three decades and are still celebrated as a special body of works within the artist's large and varied oeuvre. Smaller in scale and less formal than studio compositions, the studies record the particulars of a given site close up with the aim of conveying the sensation of direct experience. These carefully observed details also convey the belief that contemplation of unspoiled nature offered opportunities for spiritual meditation and renewal; what Durand called "lessons of high and holy meaning."
