Robert Henri (1865–1929), Snow in Central Park, 1902
Oil on canvas. Gift of the Elie and Sarah Hirschfeld Collection, Scenes of New York City, 2020.35. 3
Henri rebelled against the turn-of-the-century taste for polite subjects and pretty styles. Here, he dares to paint a banal Central Park slope. The roughly sketched scene forwards the stark urban realism of the Ashcan School, which he founded.
