This is a very fine painting of a farmer herding his cows along a country road by Providence artist George Arthur Hays.

George Arthur Hays was born in Greenville, NH, but lived for most of his adult life in Providence, Rhode Island. Although Hays had very little formal training, he was a successful artist known for his Barbizon inspired landscapes, many with cows or sheep.
