George L. Noyes gained recognition for his richly-colored New England landscapes and still lifes, and was praised for his color work and ability to paint sunlight.

These qualities are evident in his rendition of the vibrant green and golden tones of a windblown field in Cape Ann Marsh. A 1907 Boston Sunday Globe reviewer described Noyes as “…essentially a painter of summer scenes, and sunshine. He has caught one of the most difficult knacks in art, of representing atmosphere and sunlight with a fidelity that makes the impalpable real. To see a canvas of his depicting a hot day is to feel the heat and see its crinkling waves in the panting air. Noyes had his first one-man exhibition in Boston at the Hatfield Gallery in 1906, and showed regularly at the Copley Society and the Guild of Boston Artists, in addition to participating in annual exhibitions at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and the Art Institute of Chicago. He moved into Fenway Studios in 1907, stayed there until 1910, and subsequently established a studio on Boylston Street.
