Tar BarrellArtist(s)Warren LombardArtist NationalityAmerican (North American)Object Creation Date1937Medium & Supportetching on paperDimensions
6 15/16 in. x 44 7/8 in. ( 17.6 cm x 114 cm )Credit LineGift of Prof. and Mrs. Alfred H. WhiteSubject matter
Lombard summered in Monhegan, Maine and developed much of his aesthetic and subject matter there. Monhegan was a well known artist colony that had existed since the mid-nineteenth century. The moodiness and unease of this image can be attributed to the tonality and the texture of the piece. The crosshatching suggests aggression or tension.
