Note :

Hugh Bolton Jones remains among my favorite painters.  Jones is often classified with the Hudson River School of painters.  However his works – this painting in particular – have a wonderful luminescence of color that goes beyond most of the works of the school, moving into the higher key and clearer hue of the Impressionists, yet retaining the exactness of the scene he depicted, sometimes with single hair brushes. His ability to depict dead branches and foliage with integrity, yet beauty, has continually fascinated me. In looking at such fall or early spring scenes, I often see his work in my head.

Comments:

A popular painter of bucolic landscapes, Jones enjoyed an extraordinary 60-year exhibition record at the National Academy.

Most of his landscapes were painted in the Northeast, but he also traveled widely, painting as far South as Maryland and West Virginia, and in the summer of 1874 he was in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

From 1876-80, he was in France, studying in Paris and painting at the artists colony at Pont-Aven, Brittany.

His brother was Francis Coates Jones. Also appears as H. Jones Bolton.

Olive Parker Black was a student of Hugh Bolton Jones at the Art Students League. 

Her two paintings above are very reminiscent of his work, particularly in the use of small brushes for foliage,

and the transformation of dead branches and reeds to beautiful lacy surfaces.
