WINTER LANDSCAPE 

< o - Height, 18 inches; length. 

A hillside sloping from the left is MIT of "color with its 
sprinkling of snow, some green lingering among the few 
trees visible, which are almost bare of foliage, and brown- 
reds of autumn appearing among the herbage. On the 
farther side of the hill rise the snow-covered, peaked roofs 
of houses with red chimneys, and more buildings extend 
out over the plain to the right. Snow and the green of the 
grass are mingled over the plain, where other buildings 
appear in the middle distance, beyond them being red- 
brown woods, and a level hilltop line marks the horizon. 
The winter sky is a pinkish-gray, and the feel of the 
season is in the atmosphere. 

Signed at the lower right, Th. Robinson, Dec., 1889. 

Awarded the Webb Prize, Society of American Artists' Exhibition, 
New York, 1890. 

Awarded a medal, World’s Columbian Exposition, Chicago, 1893.

A gray-blue lake of slightly moving water, reflecting here 
and there lighter cloud forms, shades in a purple-blue haze 
marking some woods which streak broad green hills of the 
distant shore. On the green foreground shore are figures, 
all nude, telling of Arcadian life and aspirations. A youth 
kneeling and seated on his heels bends over a fire of fagots; 
a dish on the sward holds fish from the neighboring waters 
and kindly fruits of the land, and a child gazes at it with 
a satisfied and unquestioning expression. A fair-haired 
maiden — a golden drapery over one shoulder and her 
lower limbs, and wearing a coral necklace — stands at wist- 
ful ease facing the spectator, in an atmosphere of colorful 
radiance.
