As a Pictorialist artist, Brigman favored a poetic rather than a clearly descriptive approach to landscape, emphasizing formal elegance, elusive symbolism, and craftsmanship. Her romantic, soft-focus work celebrates a spiritual communion between humans and nature, as in this study of a nude figure enveloped within the gentle, undulating forms of her lakeside surroundings.
