Dimensions40 x 50 in.
Wagner’s palette of cool purples, blues, and grays conveys the deep cold of an icy pool banked with snow. The subject of this nocturne is a mill creek, the type of industry-driven structure in the rural landscape that draws energy from a man-made waterfall. A student of the great Philadelphia realist painter Thomas Eakins, Wagner frequently depicted man’s intervention in the landscape.
