    Quiet Inlet, 1909
    Oil on panel
    8 x 11-3/4 inches (20.3 x 29.8 cm)
    Signed lower right: Julian Onderdonk
    Signed, titled and dated verso: -Julian Onderdonk- / Quiet Inlet / 1909

    Quiet Inlet is a transitional painting between Onderdonk's early Tonalist paintings he completed during his time in New York and the south Texas landscapes that he would paint after his return to Texas; Onderdonk returned to Texas in 1909 (the same year this work was completed). This work depicts his spontaneity and confident brushwork prevalent in his Texas paintings with influences by his teacher, William Merritt Chase's plein air depictions of Shinnecock, New York, where Julian attended Chase's summer school.
