A long, low rectangular with a painted band of green extends around the rectangle at floor level. The upper half is painted off-white. About three fourths of the length is uniform.

Anne Truitt's painted minimalist sculpture incorporates two distinct themes: first, a formalistic approach to shape and the exploration of minimalist form and the relationship between color and form; second, a distinct subject matter -- here a sandcastle and the associated themes of play.
Landscape painting featuring a row of trees in the middle distance, separating a glowing sky above and a meadow in the foreground.
Best known for his landscapes and seascapes painted in a Tonalist manner, Tryon’s paintings typically feature a broken row or group of trees in front of a lustrous sky at sunset or sunrise with a marsh or pasture in the foreground, painted in muted autumnal hues.
In “Twilight” Tryon depicts a wooded meadow veiled in the misty atmosphere of deepening twilight, dominated by muted grays, browns, and blues. Tryon studied in Paris and this work illustrates the influence the French Barbizon style of painting had on his work, with its emphasis on rural scenes drawn directly from nature accentuated by a sense of mood and shadow.
