Twilight, 1975

Fairfield Porter

“Twilight” was painted the year Fairfield Porter died and offers a more diffuse, atmospheric approach to a landscape than is typically associated with him. In “Twilight” from 1975, the year of his death, he played with color in a way that was uncharacteristic, showing a bit of atmosphere in the pinks and blues of the sky. The colors form bands along with the dark greenery of the trees and ground cover. There is no mistaking it for anything other than a landscape, but it feels like a something else: a suggestion or a whisper. (
