Robert Frost*

Although born in Great Britain, artist Henry Farrer (1844-1903) spent most of his mature career in the United States, creating unique and expressive landscapes often using the medium of watercolor.  The poetry of American writer Robert Frost (1874-1963) reflects his creative and emotional ties with the region of New England.

*Line from poem Going for Water
