Bruce Crane was at his best and most typical in simply designed views of the russet and gray fields of late autumn or early winter. He studied with tonalist A. H. Wyant Crane exhibited at the National Academy of Design in 1879 and thereafter contributed regularly to the Academy, which elected him an associate in 1889 and a full academician in 1901. One of the most prolific prizewinners of his generation, Crane received honors including the Webb Prize of 1897 from the Society of American Artists, and medals at the International Exposition of 1904 in Saint Louis, and the National Academy of Design exhibition of 1912. He belonged to the Lyme Art Association and spent many summers after 1900 at Old Lyme, Connecticut. Oil on canvas, signed l.r. "Bruce Crane". The work is set in a period gilt wood frame. Frame: 32" x 27" ; canvas 20" x 14". Good condition. The work has been restored and lined. There are minor losses to the painted surface of the frame.
