James M. Hart - Marine and Cattle

James M. Hart (1828-1901), British-American
Marine and Cattle (On the North Shore), 1884
OIL ON CANVAS, 19 ½ x 28 ½ inches
Gift of Elizabeth Hills Lyman

This composition by James M. Hart illustrates how the artist's pastoral art developed during his later career. The paintings soft, tonal brushwork and expansive space almost diametrically oppose the crisp specificity of his early work. Similar to George Loring Brown's late views of Venice, Hart's com­position suggests a landscape seen through the veil of memory rather than one recorded in situ.
