Anyone else from New England? I saw this painting in storage the other day…
…and I had a rare feeling of disappointment in Seattle and its slow, monochrome autumns.
Heart of New England, a c. 1910-14 landscape in oil by Edmund Henry Garrett, is from the collection of Horace C. Henry who gifted his works of art and the Henry Art Gallery’s original structure to the University of Washington in 1926. Henry hails from New England, too – North Bennington, VT. He came to Washington State to build rail lines.
If this painting smelled like New England (as much as it looks like New England), I would visit it daily.
(Also from New England, the world record for carved/decorated pumpkins displayed in a single location: 28,952.)
