Artwork of the Week: July 1, 2024

End of a June Day
Mahonri M. Young (1877-1957), 'End of a June Day,' c. 1931, oil on canvas, 36 x 29 inches. Brigham Young University Museum, gift of the Mahonri M. Young Estate, 1959.

June has officially ended, as has the summer day shown in this painting. This scene depicts Weir Farm near Branchville, Connecticut, where three artists prominently featured in the MOA's collection lived: J. Alden Weir, Dorothy Weir Young, and Mahonri Young, the painter of this work. Young made numerous written notes about and sketches of the things he saw here, including "broken granite stones, which form a kind of cliff," and "a very old man, through the trees mowing the poverty grass among the tombs at the little cemetery."
