Across the Field
Size: 9 1/4 x 11 7/8 Medium: Graphite.
A classic example of a reductive Nash graphite sketch. Minimalistic yet fully capturing the mood of the scene.
(1898-1942) Willard Nash moved to Santa Fe from Detroit in 1921, where his work became increasingly infused with an abstract simplicity and cubist spirit. Journalists and critics of the 1930s and 1940s referred to him as “an American Cézanne.” Nash did not have a particular "signature" style, and produced variegated works that ranged from riffs on the landscape and people of New Mexico to completely abstracted pieces.
