Object Name Painting
Title Pink Pasture
Date 1954
Medium oil on canvas
Description Pink Pasture is typical of Avery's late works. The overall flat, two dimensional quality of the scene is enhanced by the artist's application of thin paint. The foreground form of the three dark trees leaning together in a solid mass is reflected in the three white cows gazing beneath two pale green trees in the distance. The high horizon line is fringed with foliage and broken up by the tree tops. Each of these objects is silhouetted against the empty orange-pink hillside.
