"Mason's Island" is a mature example of Ranger's forest interior- a subject for which he was considered without peer among American painters at the turn-of-the-century. Using a carefully controlled composition, Ranger lavishes attention on the texture of the broadly sweeping trees and rocky soil, interrupted by a backlit opening in the woods. Ranger was attracted to Mason's Island by it statuesque oaks and rocky outcroppings. He moved there from Old Lyme in 1904.
