H. Lee Hirsche studied under Josef Albers at the Yale School of Fine Arts. He taught design for two years at the University of Texas before accepting a professorship at Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts in 1957.
This painting is an interesting transitional work bridging his geometric oil paintings to an ink wash landscape technique he later perfected.
Small dent to canvas in upper right quadrant; some scuffing and staining to frame and liner.
