Over the Mountain

Albright’s early paintings were typically landscapes, but as his style progressed he became more interested in figurative subjects. Albright commonly painted children in rural, outdoor settings. Albright became known for his youthful subjects and stopped painting landscapes and street scenes. Albright was increasingly influenced by impressionism and enjoyed making sunny, plein-air paintings.
