On View: Luce Visible Storage and Study Center, 5th Floor
An important figure in the second generation of Hudson River School painters, Whittredge was a friend and sketching companion of several of the artists on view here, including Sanford Gifford, William Haseltine, and Jervis McEentee. In this small coastal scene, probably of Newport, Rhode Island, Whittredge experimented with the broad, richly textured manner of the French Barbizon school—a style that would characterize his landscapes after 1880.
