Max Weber was one of the earliest American artists to adopt the innovative styles of European Modernism—Cubism and Post-Impressionism—and incorporate those styles into his own work. "View of Roslyn, New York," illustrates Weber’s admiration for the work of the great French Post-Impressionist painter, Paul Cezanne (French, 1839-1906). It was during Weber’s visit to Paris that, at the end of Cezanne’s life, Cezanne's work was exhibited to much acclaim.

In May of 1921, Weber and his young wife Frances bought their first home near Garden City, Long Island. He began traveling the countryside on the North Shore of Long Island seeking out subjects for his landscape paintings, making sketches and returning to the studio to create the final oils. "View of Roslyn, New York", is a canvas he created after one of these excursions; the town of Roslyn was only a few miles away from his home. In its composition, palette, and directional, modeling brushwork the painting reflects the artist’s ongoing admiration for the work of Cezanne.
