Thomas Moran. “Autumn on Peconic Bay,” 1904. Oil on canvas, 20 x 30 inches. Private collection.
An example of Moran’s East Hampton themes that emphasize dramatic skies, deep space and complex receding planes constructed with contrasting tonalities and a carefully planned distribution of light. A follower of the Romantic tradition, Moran believed in conveying the subjective spirit, or mood, of a site and composed his paintings in the studio. — Courtesy of East Hampton Historical Society.
