Artwork Mentioned

Between Setting Sun
and Rising Moon

Excerpt from the article:

"The first Hallgarten Prize is won by Robert Strong Woodward's Between Setting Sun and Rising Moon, a landscape that hardly will escape comparison with those of Blakelock and that carries on the Blakelock tradition of foliage silhouetted against a sky rich in color. It bears plentiful evidence, however, of original observation in the treatment of the foreground and the drawing of the foliage and lighter branches, and especially in the feeling of depth..."
