KENSETTIANA: Both Kensett and Heade turned to areas along the Connecticut shore for subject matter, butt their works remain pretty distinct: Heade's visceral paintings repeatedly display at one moment dramatic oppositions of light and dark, near and far, tension and calm, geometric and organic forms; Kensett generally avoids the startling extremes of Heade's juxtapositions, and attend to the specifics of his sites, providing a consistency of mood within each scene -- Not in vain he is a New Englander, and from Cheshire, too!
