Title

Long Island Landscape

Description

A soothing rural landscape fades into the hazy distance. Its design is mostly symmetrical, save for a red barn and fence at left center; humans and livestock are conspicuous in their absence. Perhaps the painting's most remarkable feature is its almost kaleidoscopic foreground, bright and particular with color. It may be that Henning's extensive work on toleware for the Index of American Design influenced his palette of colors here.
