Looking past the poignant subject matter, the cowboys celebrating Christmas, you can see the influence of Roberts’s favorite painters, Rembrandt and Van Gogh. Rembrandt is in the warmly lit interiors and the domestic compositions; Van Gogh is in the construction of the rooms, in the rustic boards and walls that play with perspective to frame the scenes.
