Painted in 1917, Lingering Snow embodies the refined brushwork and perceptive sense of color found in much of his early work, particularly in the subtle range of tones in the foreground snow. It serves as an example of Hibbard’s ability to transform the ordinary to the extraordinary, and puts into practice a lesson he imparted to his many students that “snow is the most sensitive subject, subtly influenced by sudden changes in light. It is never dead white!”
