Hillside Pastures—September

Willard Metcalf American

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 774

Painted only three years before Metcalf's death, this autumnal landscape depicts the hilly farmland around Springfield, Vermont. A late example of Metcalf's work in the Impressionist mode, it is brightly colored, with dry, broken brushstrokes which often expose the bare canvas. The artist was influenced by Impressionism as a result of his friendships with artists such as Childe Hassam and his membership in the Ten American Painters, a group consisting largely of Impressionist artists.
