With her husband, Thomas Moran (also in this gallery), Mary Nimmo Moran participated in the American revival of etching by creating fresh, lyrical landscapes such as this view near her home in East Hampton, Long Island. Moran traveled extensively in Europe and was particularly influenced by the Barbizon school (see Corot and Daubigny, elsewhere in the exhibition). Like these French landscape artists, she paid special attention to weather conditions and atmospheric effects, particularly evident inthis turbulent sky. Throughout her career, Moran etched out of doors directly from nature.
