Winter Landscape

Walter Emerson Baum (American, 1884–1956)

Walter Baum was one of the few artists of the New Hope School to be born and raised in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. He felt a close connection to the area’s natural and cultural characteristics. In Winter Landscape Baum features a stream winding through ice and snow-covered banks, which he created with a thick, almost sculptural, application of paint. Dynamic blue shadows accented with passages of yellow and brown capture the contrasting sensations of cold snow and warm sun on a bright, clear winter day.
