Admiring Painting of Brookland’s Trinity Washington University

Lately I’ve been trying to get more familiar with Washington art and artists. I came upon the image below that should be familiar to many in the neighborhood as it is of Trinity Washington University on Michigan Avenue.

Rolle Trinity

The view of Trinity appears to be from the area around the intersection of Franklin Street and Lincoln Road, NE, possibly from within Glenwood Cemetery. The artist is August Herman Olson Rolle (1875-1941) who was  and important D.C. Impressionist landscape painter during the early 20th Century. There is a fairly good biography of him here if you want to read more.
