Description The detailed rendering of this tranquil scene is characteristic of Hart's early work, when he was most deeply influenced by the Hudson River school of landscape painting. Born in Scotland, Hart began his career as a coach decorator. In 1850, he traveled to Germany's major art centers--Munich and Düsseldorf--where he completed his training as an artist. From 1857 until his death, Hart was based in New York City.
