Metcalf’s use of pointillist strokes to suggest falling snow—the “veil” of the title—and the soft tonalist palette made this one of his most popular paintings, much praised by contemporary critics and art lovers alike. The square shape of the canvas adds to the sense of quiet and serenity that Metcalf sought in his work. Blue violet underpainting dotted with red unifies the composition and lends an unexpected warmth to the gray winter light. Metcalf spent the first of many winters in Cornish, New Hampshire, in 1909. This painting is one of two nearly identical canvases with the same title painted during this period.

How to Adjust Your Mask: To adjust your mask, slide the soft rubber toggle to find your best fit so that the mask is snug but not tight across your face. The toggle can be positioned anywhere along the loop so that it is in a comfortable place (for example not behind your ear, or under the arm of your glasses). Next, fit the mask over your face with the nose piece formed around your nose and ear loops behind your ears. Finally, pull the excess fabric down under your chin and play with the 'ruching' or gathered fabric at the sides of the mask so that any gaps are smoothed out, allowing the mask to sit close against your face.
