In 1893, the year after he returned from his last visit to Giverny, Robinson taught plein-air painting at Napanoch, New York, in the Shawangunk Mountains, and chronicled that still-rural region in several canvases. Here, he commemorated an old canal that used to facilitate the transport of coal from Pennsylvania to New York City but had been rendered obsolete by more efficient railroad lines. In contrast to the grandiloquent responses to the same region by the earlier Hudson River School painters, Robinson’s subtle view demonstrates the American Impressionists’ determination to represent the commonplace.
