Fairfield Porter

(American, 1907-1975)
Farmland, 1959

oil on canvas, 31 3/4 x 40 inches

The painting seemed to me to be about as good as I knew how to do it at the time. It didn’t live up to my hopes, and what my hopes are would be hard to tell, except, or perhaps because, all that interests me in painting is what I cannot do.
