Artwork of the Week: April 7, 2019
J.T. Harwood (1860-1940), Pont Neuf at Dawn #2, 1930, etching and aquatint, 11 1/4 x 15 1/2 inches. Brigham Young University Museum of Art.
This week we celebrate the birthday of J.T. Harwood. This colorful print by Harwood is full of the life and energy that we often associate with Spring. The rippling blue water that fills the foreground of the image, creates a feeling of subtle motion, as if we are being pulled with the rippling currents toward the exciting possibilities of a new day.
