Thomas Moran Studio, 1884, Restoration


AAQ-Moran-120703-4-LR-2

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.
