The enigmatic Morning by Thomas Wilmer Dewing

This enigmatic painting is called Morning and was painted by Thomas Wilmer Dewey in 1879. Dewey is considered and American Impressionist. The painting was considered eccentric and difficult by its critics. To my mind the picture presages the art deco fashions of a later period.




The women and their horns.

The hounds listen quizzically.
