- The circular shapes, organic forms, and feathered brushwork of this canvas exemplify Dove’s imaginative, emotional response to nature—the sun, clouds, and land of his surroundings. In 1910 he was among the first American artists to create purely abstract works.
- Known for his humor and whimsy, Dove once suggested that the “reflections” cited in the title were those created by the headlights of a passing automobile on a windshield.
- With Georgia O’Keeffe and John Marin, Dove was a key member of the modernist painters group championed by art dealer Alfred Stieglitz.
