This painting was featured in our weekly email on 9/22/17 along with the following gallery comments:

Floyd Hopper was a Herron graduate and was part of the American Regionalism school of artists. Early works were very similar in character to those of Thomas Hart Benton. By the 1960s he had moved on to work almost exclusively as a watercolorist. And that remained his medium of choice until the end of his career. He was a longtime resident of Noblesville, IN and often his work captured solitary Midwest scenes including farmsteads and rail yards. Today’s painting, Winter’s Day (artist’s title) is a nice example. It’s large – a ‘full sheet’ watercolor depicting an old farm gate. This is a true watercolor – the white areas of the painting (the negatives) are indeed the untouched white paper. It’s a very architectural affair, which I think is reflected in the best of his work from the watercolor period. Impressively large with a nice frame and double mat – ready to hang.
