In this watercolor, William Stanley Haseltine portrayed the calm shore of the Traunstein River, Bavaria, on a summer afternoon. A member of the Hudson River School and a practitioner of Luminism, Haseltine focused on atmosphere and reflection rather than a grand vista. His transparent washes and areas of opaque watercolor over blue paper create the effect of light skipping across the water.
