The Plains at the Base of the Rocky Mountains, (painting)
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 10
10. "The Plains at the Base of the Rocky Mountains," by Worthington Whittredge. A sweet, placid scene, interpenetrated with feeling and beauty in every pore, and rendered with Mr. Whittredge's characteristic facility. The shimmer of the noontime atmosphere, the quiet depth of the almost endless sky, the distant snow-covered mountains, the admirable fore, middle and back grounds, the encampment and picturesque grouping of horses and men on the margin of the meandering stream, the local tints, etc., are all charmingly and accurately portrayed in Whittredge's best Dusseldorf manner.
