This work is likely one of Maurice Braun’s paintings completed on the East Coast during the 1920s. In a 1942 exhibition of his work in Springville, Utah, Reginald Poland described a painting entitled Rocky Ledge in Autumn. Bram Dijkstra feels that this painting—with its rocky ledge in the foreground—could be that work. “The relatively unaccented hills have a distinct ‘East Coast’ feel—and, most importantly, Braun’s colors, the rolling meadows, and even the haze hanging over the background, directly suggest New England.”
