Abbott Henderson Thayer

Yesterday, I was at the National Gallery here in DC. They have a show of some of the recently acquired paintings from the Corcoran Collection. There was one there that blew me away. A painting by Abbott Henderson Thayer. This is one he painted of Mt. Monadnock in New Hampshire. He did a bunch of paintings of this mountain. Up close it really is a beautiful piece. Very loose, great colors and lots of layering. Kinda reminded me of the artist Douglas Fryer or Michael Workman.
