MASSACHUSETTS/CONNECTICUT, 1891-1968 A fine oil on canvas Impressionist winter landscape painting by John Nichols Haapanen. The work depicts a large river with snow covered banks and a confluence in the foreground on the verge of spring. Notice the reflection of the mountain on the river's surface in a subtle blue-pink monetesque color palette. Haapanen was a member of the Boston Art Club having trained under Ernest Lee Major (1864-1950). The painting is signed in the lower right corner "Haapanen" and retains its original period Arts and Crafts gilt frame. Canvas measures 16" by 20", framed 19 1/4" by 23 1/8"
Overall very good condition, professionally cleaned and restored, minor chipping to frame.
