Craggy trees and stormy skies were typical Hudson River School motifs used to emphasize cycles of life and the sublime presence of a Divine force in the landscape. Bristol lived in the Berkshires, but traveled far and wide to find other landscape subjects, including to the Hudson River. In 1892, he exhibited In the Fishkill Mountains at a painting gallery in Springfield, Massachusetts.
