Abstract

Description

The philosopher of a Northwest aesthetic in art and architecture, Harry Wentz followed the advice of Arthur Wesley Dow, his teacher at the Art Students League of New York, to paint with simplified shapes in order to fill the paper or canvas beautifully. Here, the abstract forms of the trees, eventually rising beyond the top of the watercolor paper, mark the progress of the horses and riders as they ascend with the trees against a backdrop of silvery mist.
