Snowy Mt. Adams

Ida Street Viaduct– Nocturne
16" x 20", Oil on Canvas

Nocturne painting is a term coined by James Abbott McNeill Whistler to describe a painting style that depicts scenes evocative of the night or subjects as they appear in a veil of light, in twilight, or in the absence of direct light.

This snowy twilight evening scene of the Mt. Adams area in Cincinnati shows where the Ida Street viaduct passes over Wareham Street, from the intersection of Elsinore Street.
