Painting

The Road Home
1829-1913, Canadian/American

Oil on panel, 9 x 11 inches, 1874, signed and dated lower right, in a period gilt frame. This is a wonderful tonalist view of a horse drawn hay wagon bound for home in the bleak cold of winter.

His formal art education includes studies in Europe (c.1870) under Charles-François Daubigny (see AskART) probably in Paris or Auvers sur Oise a suburb to the north of Paris; and under Vincenzo Marinelli (see AskART) in Naples, Italy.
