Stream & Glen
Edward Loyal Field
This forest scene is a good example of another favorite subject: close, tight scenes in the forest, treated with an impressionistic eye.

He returned to the United States in 1882 and settled in Manhattan for the rest of his career. During his lifetime he was exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago, Pennsylvania Association of Fine Arts, National Academy of Design and the St. Louis Exposition in 1904. He also exhibited in major exhibitions in Boston, Washington, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Fransico and the Paris Salons.
He was a member of the Salmagundi Club, where he earned prizes in 1904 and 1905, as well as being a member of the Boston Art Club and the Artists Fund Society.
