Object Description: In Barge, Trees, Silver Ball, blue-black and green organic trees float in front of a silver form that recalls the sun or moon suspended over a sliver of barge. The forms are barely identifiable, even with the aid of the painting’s title. Dove worked from 1910 until his death in 1946 to extract the pictorial essence of forms and recast them in his compositions, often leaving little or no visible trace of his point of departure.
