Greatly admired for his nocturnal paintings and snow scenery, this work of George W Sotter serves as a great example of both these aspects. In the night rendition, a mill glows under soft moonlight. The industrial building looks rather inviting, the surface of its wall painted not unlike pointilism. Snow lays dappled across the scene, light executed with certain care in the covered ground by the empty trees of the foreground.

Following an exhibition at Woodmere in 1946 featuring the work of prominent Bucks County artists, -including Sotter, John Folinsbee, Edward Redfield, and Harry Lieth-Ross-,the museum purchased this work from the artist directly.
