Rocky Mountain Scene, Wind River Mountains


Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description At the close of the fur-traders' rendezvous, Miller's patron, the Scottish Sir William Drummond Stewart, took a small group of friends fishing and hunting in the Wind River Mountains. Miller recalled the region as a sportsman's paradise, with crystal clear lakes in which trout were so plentiful that they could be caught with pins rather than with fishhooks. This painting was commissioned by William C. Wilson in 1853.
