Evening Tones abstracts a landscape along the Hudson River into a vibrant range of colors. Oscar Bluemner (1867-1938) came to the United States to escape Germany’s conservatism, hoping to find the freedom to try new ideas. After years of struggling in his architectural practice, he turned to painting, throwing himself into the exciting theories of modern art that were making their way across the Atlantic from Europe.
