Lawson was a member of the early twentieth-century group known as The Eight, however he is also characterized as an impressionist. His training with American Impressionist painters J. Alden Weir and John H. Twachtman influenced Lawson's method of building up layers of paint by application of small, sparkling strokes of color. His approach is exemplified in this landscape in which rich tones of blue and green create a web-like surface and light seems to dance from the reflections on the narrow stream. Although Lawson lived in Manhattan, he chose his landscape subjects from the areas outside the urban borders of the city, which were accessible to him, and depicted by him, in all seasons and at varying times of day.
