About

This fun impressionist winter painting of children sliding with long shadows and footprints in the snow was painted by American artist William Baxter Closson (1848-1926).

He then pursued painting with oils and pastels, and was a member of the Boston Art Club, Copley Society, Washington Society of Artists, along with many others. His award winning work was exhibited at both the Columbian Exposition in Chicago, as well as the St. Louis Exposition in 1904 and the Paris Salon. Oil on canvas, signed lower left, titled on front plaque and verso William Vareika Fine Arts (Newport, Rhode Island) label “The Trail of Snowshoes,” and housed in a beautifully carved giltwood frame.
