About this artwork

Guy Carleton Wiggins was devoted to the depiction of both rural and urban landscape and he became especially well known for winter scenes. He was the second generation of a family of painters; his father, Carleton Wiggins, was one of the first members of the artists’ colony in Old Lyme, Connecticut. The younger Wiggins also spent time in Old Lyme, where Snow-Crowned Hills was painted. Although the broken brushstrokes of the composition clearly derive their inspiration from the Impressionists, the unspoiled, uninhabited wintry landscape portrayed is uniquely American.
