This is a richly painted, atmospheric woodland scene by the New England artist Joseph H. Greenwood. Oil on board, 6 x 8 inches, 1898, signed and dated on the lower right. Greenwood started out as a factory worker and then a teacher and eventually became Worcester's most noted landscape painter who preferred to paint the natural beauty of rural New England's four seasons. He was influenced by his contemporaries, George Inness and Willard Metcalf and studied in the Boston area with R. Swain Gifford and John Appleton Brown.
