This brilliant aspen-filled landscape appears to be a plein air study that relates to a larger work, Morning in the Aspen Forest, painted in 1935 and exhibited at the Kreimer & Brother Co. galleries in Cincinnati that fall. (see related image 24) Aspens-Twining relates even more directly to a work of the same size but with an Indian figure included, John in the Aspens, 693.
