Comments: digital 6-05 Florida trip; index
Commentary: Schoonover’s palette continues to lighten in this landscape. His brush strokes and use of light reflect evidence of Impressionism.
This painting was probably finished in April 1958, the year indicated in the inscription. The 1959 en verso of the painting is probably in error as the work was exhibited in 1958.
Provenance: Sold by artist to Barbara Matuszewski, Stuart, Florida; private collection [2006]
