Painting

The Old Mill
1833-1894, American

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. Kemper paints a very peaceful image of this long forgotten mill. 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.
