Catalogue Note

In his description of Sanford Robinson Gifford's Marshes on the Hudson, the noted scholar Dr. John P. Driscoll writes: "The sparkling quality of light, horizontal format, division of composition in a horizontal two-thirds and one-third manner and the reach of land jutting in from the left foreground are all elements that mark this as an important example of luminist painting" (All That Is Glorious Around Us: Paintings from the Hudson River School on Loan from a Friend of the Museum of Art, University Park, Pennsylvania, 1981, p. 74).
