William Hart - Summer - The Passing Shower

William Hart (1823-1894), British-American
Summer—The Passing Shower, 1873
OIL ON CANVAS, 13 x 20 inches
Gift of Horace Fairbanks

William Hart's Summer—The Passing Shower offers a charming pendant for his later Autumn Morning. Here, his depiction of a sudden summer rain storm provides an opportunity to explore varying effects of light and shadow falling across the landscape. The rain does not disrupt the peacefulness of the scene, however, as the cattle in the foreground, the small pond, and the trees themselves appear undisturbed.
