Mink Lake, Adirondacks

Mink Lake, Adirondacks


Winslow Homer

(American, 1836-1910)


Anonymous Gift 1954.833



Mink Pond was Homer’s favorite haunt in the Adirondacks. With a subtle range of smoky blue washes, the artist conveyed the grandeur of the mountains and a stormy sky towering above a diminutive canoe with a casting fisherman. Small breaks of brightness provide moments of relief in the monochromatic tonality of the whole.
