Everlasting Waterfall

In her Waterfall series, Pat Steir has explored the imagery of water, continuing her fascination with landscape. This work, which verges on abstraction, is nevertheless an evocative representation of a waterfall. The artist applied a number of horizontal brushstrokes loaded with thinned paint at the top of the canvas, and the paint streamed down in lines, drips, and rivulets, emulating the properties of water.
