Description Hart was a Scottish-born American landscape and cattle painter, and Hudson River School artist. This drawing shows two figures on the river bank. The female figure seems to look down at a seated male figure who appears to be sketching. His younger brother was also an artist and they worked in similar styles (see WAM 37.1566).
Provenance Acquired by William T. Walters, Baltimore; inherited by Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1894; by bequest to Walters Art Museum, 1931.
