In George Gardner Symons’ wintry scene, leafless trees establish an irregular vertical pattern in orange, brown, and yellow, while a late-afternoon sun casts diagonal shadows in cool tones along the hillside. The arrangement of barns and houses neatly contained within sloping stone walls on snowy hills bespeaks an ordered control of the landscape. A recent conservation cleaning showcases Symons’ command of his palette. Look closely and notice how he highlights the reds, greens, and warm browns of the lichen-covered stones.
