An active member of the second generation of Hudson River school painters, Hart was born in Scotland and moved to New York as a child with his parents. He studied in Germany, then returned to the United States in 1853 and opened a studio in Albany before moving to New York City. This painting, like baroque-era landscapes, domesticates and frames nature. Combining genre and landscape painting, it sentimentalizes the pleasures of nature and family life.
