Part of a group of New York painters called "The Eight*," Ernest Lawson was fascinated by the urban environment of early 20th-century New York and also the bucolic landscape of the Hudson River.  His style was close to pure Impressionism*, and many of his works focus on the influence of human beings on the landscapes, quite often with the suggestion that someone has just been a part of the scene.  He also completed numerous snow scenes as well as depictions of the less-than-beau (showing 500 of 18865 characters).
