Morning in the Adirondacks culminates a series of paintings that resulted from visits Gifford made to the Adirondack wilderness of northern New York, beginning in the 1840s. As he depicts the vastness of the wilderness and the dramatic effects of mist and morning sunlight, Gifford also records the impact of the pioneer settlers who cleared the land and built homes there.
