This work was executed while Inness and his family were living in Medfield, and the scene shown, although not in any way topical, might have been inspired by the landscape of that area. Whatever the case, "Landscape" shows the influence of the French Barbizon school on the young Inness who, just at this time, was moving away from the clarity and detail of his earlier Hudson River School aesthetic.
