Spencer Baird Nichols (No. 2)

SPENCER BAIRD NICHOLS (1875-1950), Water Garden, Bronxville, gouache on black paper, 25 ½ x 20 inches.

This work represents the pool and garden of Spencer Nichols’ former Bronxville home at 93 Tanglewylde Avenue. The gouache shows the influence of the artist’s work for Louis Comfort Tiffany, for whom he designed mosaics, windows, and murals from about 1911-1917. The impression of stained glass is created by the vivid, jewel-like patches of color that are sharply defined by the black background.
