Alvan Fisher was one of the first American artists to break from portraiture and explore the majesty of the American landscape; his pastoral works set the stage for the Hudson River School a decade later.
Fisher was from Dedham, Massachusetts and studied with the ornamental painter John Ritto Penniman. He exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Boston Athenaeum and the National Academy of Design.
There is a Vose Galleries label on the reverse, attributing this painting to Fisher.
