AbernathyI--Spring in Wallkill New York.jpg
The painting captures the open fields of Wallkill on a spring day. Abernathy’s thick brush strokes depict a tree on the left side of the midground with mountains in the background. Beyond the tree is a tan field, its color suggesting a recent…

Abernathy--The Oak Tree.jpg
On a purely aesthetic level, this portrayal of rural farm life in autumn is quite clearly done in a painterly matter: quick brushstrokes with a specific choice to omit most detail. It can be assumed that the light-handed application of paint was a…

Abernathy--The Lake Central Park.jpg
Against New York's skyline in the background, people relax in boats upon a body of water. The colors are cooler, with lots of dark and bright greens, and also lots of blues. The boaters are painted in warmer colors, along with red, to make them stand…

Entrance chamber building for the Delaware Aqueduct, a system that provides over half of New York City with its water.
