Description In the 1850s, Thom trained in New York at the National Academy of Design and also with the landscape painter George Inness. In 1859 he traveled to France where he studied under Thomas Couture and Pierre Edouard Frère. From 1860 to 1866, Thom worked with Frère in Ecouen. Subsequently, from 1866 through 1873, Thom pursued a successful career in London, specializing in rural genre subjects, he returned to the United States in 1873, settling initially in New York City and later in Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey. William T. Walters compiled an album of drawings on the subject of prayer, which may have included this watercolor.
