Catalogue Note

"Morning Wreath shows the heavy white mists that envelope the spectacular countryside of northwest Oregon where Carl Hall painted this scene. Here, he says, he tried to capture the feeling of slowly moving mist which drifts in 'ominous shapes, leaving masses of fir trees like dark forbidding ships at anchor'" ("Oregon Artist Carl Hall Portrays the Great Northwest with 'Magical Realism,'" Life, March 8, 1948, p. 85).
