This is a lush, finely detailed landscape by Henry W. Kemper, painted in 1865, signed and dated on the lower left corner. Oil on canvas, 16 x 14 inches, in the original period gilt frame.

In this verdant summer scene, a traveler approaches the mill from the darkness of the forest just as the sun peeks through passing storm clouds.
