    This painting was executed facing the Reunion district of downtown Dallas from the southwest on the Trinity riverbanks. The rendering of the river and surrounding vegetation's transparency and softness, contrasts with the clustered geometry of the buildings. The artist used the heavy texture of the support, palette knives, and flickering brushstrokes, to evoke the effect of shifting light conditions from day to dusk. With impastos, scumbles, and glazes of paint, he juxtaposes the flashing lights of Reunion Tower with the sunset reflected on the windows of the downtown buildings.

    Provenance:
    Perry Brooks Nichols

    Exhibited:
