Landscape with Farm

Title

Landscape with Farm

Creator

Henry Varnum Poor
American, 1887-1970

Date

c. 1939-40

Description

Not all of the studies made by Poor in the months that led up to his painting of the north wall were translated directly into the fresco. This drawing, quite possibly a view of a farm in Lancaster County, nonetheless captures the spirit, if not the actual imagery, with which the artist depicted the rural landscape of the mural’s agricultural half.
