Renown for his teaching and early work as an illustrator, DuMond belonged to the movement of American painters keen to further the practices of Impressionism in the rural enclaves of New York and Connecticut. Top of the Hill demonstrates DuMond’s sensitive depiction of the light and atmosphere of Old Lyme, where he was part of a summer colony of artists dedicated to landscape.
