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).
