Albert Pinkham Ryder, Curfew Hour, (1882)
Though it barely resembles the piece it once was when purchased by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1909, Ryder’s Curfew Hour is still a beautiful and haunting painting, especially in it’s decrepitude. Because of his overzealous use of varnish and unstable pigments, many of Ryder’s paintings are facing similar transformations as time wears on.
