ON VIEW AT THE FARNSWORTH

Rockwell Kent, Maine Coast, circa 1907, oil on canvas, Bequest of Mrs. Elizabeth B. Noyce, 1997.3.25

Featured in Maine and American Art: The Farnsworth Art Museum with thanks to the Henry Luce Foundation and Wyeth Foundation for American Art.

Made during Kent’s stay on Monhegan in the winter of 1906–07, Maine Coast shows snow-covered fields and a thick stand of trees with one of the island’s mountains in the distance and a glimpse of the sea beyond. Its blue-tinged shadows on the white snow and stormy gray skies—freely and expressively painted—reveal the attraction the scenic island held for Kent and other Henri Circle artists.
