In 1901, Julian Onderdonk moved to New York where he undertook studies at the Art Students League with Kenyon Cox. Later, his studies expanded to include instruction with William Merrit Chase, Frank Vincent DuMond, and Robert Henri.
At the turn of the century, Tonalism (1880-1910) was a widely practiced and popular style in American landscape painting. The style was characterized by landscapes with an overall tone of colored atmosphere or mist. Grays, browns, or blues would usually dominate such compositions. A popular subject was dusk or dawn with a rising mist.
This early morning painting of New York's Central Park by Onderdonk was painted shortly after he arrived. It's atmospheric effects of moisture and the early morning light are skillfully rendered and in the great tradition of American Tonalist painting.
