26 x 30 in.

Nearing Spring is a particularly fine example of the type of domestic-scaled landscapes that Schofield produced for his collectors through the 1920s. Here he depicts seasonal change and transformation. It is still winter, but touches of warm orange and a glow of golden light bathe the cool snowy banks, signaling the approach of spring. It is thought that the artist made this painting on a trip through New England.
