Catalogue Note

"The James Peale landscapes of the 1820s have changed considerably from his paintings of the 1790s. While the site may still be specific.., there is now a sense of enjoyment and excitement about the landscape. The color is in a higher key, light and shadow form interesting patterns, the figures even in their genre activity are integrated into the painting not merely placed in the setting, and the whole painting has a theme and unity. The final stage of James' landscape work shows dramatic scenes in which he contemplates man's place in nature." (Edward Nygren with Bruce Robertson, Views and Visions. American Landscapes before 1830, Washington, D.C., 1987)
