As landscape subjects, Beers favored the countrysides of New England, the Hudson River Valley, and the Catskill mountains. Here, After the Storm easily demonstrates Beers’s careful training. With a balanced composition divided between the dark colors of a forested riverbank and the cool-toned reflections on the waterway’s placid surface, a group of cattle draws the viewer’s eye to the center of the painting. With thick brush strokes of blues and grays, Beers articulates a thick ceiling of cloud and atmosphere that directs the light and color of the scene, producing the moody and highly poignant anticipation of a sudden summer storm.
