An evening scene in late autumn in South Dartmouth, "November Evening" brings Tryon's career to a conclusion. He was becoming too ill to work, and the following March he wrote, "It takes so much nerve force to reach anything worthwhile in art that I had rather abandon all attempts at painting than do inferior work." He had already made provision for the construction of an art gallery at Smith College that would bear his name. Ground was broken on the site of the present building in June 1925; Tryon died on July 1 in South Dartmouth, where he is buried.
