Why We Love It

John Whorf is one of America’s foremost watercolorists. While he did many sporting and coastal scenes, this is a wonderful depiction of pastoral life. Whorf was a New Englander and in this work he captures a quiet rural farmyard buried in snow.

The Value

Collecting works on paper is often a good way to begin a collection since they tend to be more affordable than oils. Since Whorf is most famous for his watercolor paintings, collecting them is an opportunity to have the artist’s best work without having to pay a premium.
