DescriptionFRANK REAUGH (American, 1860-1945)
Study for "Twilight-Rest"
Pastel on grit paper
4 x 8-3/4 inches (10.2 x 22.2 cm)
Frank Reaugh frequently made smaller versions of sometimes-later larger paintings, as seen here in his Twilight-Rest, the larger version of which is at the University of Texas. These small versions should not be considered mere preparatory sketches, but as stand-alone works of art in their own right. Night paintings or "nocturnes" were extremely popular in the United States between about 1900 and 1910 and are very difficult to paint well. Recently an entire exhibition of Frederic Remington's "nocturnes" toured the country. Reaugh also painted a number of "nocturnes" from which a similar exhibition could be drawn, including Twilight-Rest.
