Why We Love It

This charming landscape captures the beauty and poetry of a quiet meadow at dusk. It would make a delightful addition to any collection.

The Value

We were able to purchase a nice group of William E. Norton paintings directly from the estate. This work is part of that group. These paintings are fine examples of Norton’s signature impressionist style. They are handsomely framed and priced advantageously for new and seasoned collectors alike.
