Winter Scene in Moonlight catches Henry Farrer at a crossroads. In the early 1860s, as a member of the Society for the Advancement of Truth in Art (an association run by his own brother), Farrer worked in the Pre-Raphaelite tradition. In the 1870s, he shifted from creating realistic still-lifes to the tonalist style, using watercolors to develop moodier landscapes.

Originally made in 1869, this piece is Farrer's earliest known watercolor landscape and exhibits a perfect blend of his two styles. To render this scene—likely a vista in Brooklyn, where the artist lived most his life—Farrer used a mix of watercolor and gouache. The result is a realistic landscape, but with an undeniably dreamy aura of nocturnal serenity.
