In 1860 Durand painted a replica of this subject for W. T. Walters of Baltimore, which was later owned by his partner and subsequently by Royal G. Taft of Providence. The present location is unknown. In a letter to Durand, dated from Providence on March 2, 1876, now in the New York Public Library, Taft refused to allow this painting to be sent to the Centennial Exhibition in Philadelphia. This version was exhibited at the NAD, 1860, no. 515, 'Sunday Morning;' and at the Durand Sale (Ortgies), 1887, no. 377, 'Sunday Morning' (lent by Royal C. Taft, Providence). For another study, sometimes called 'Landscape: Sunday Morning,' painted by Durand in 1850 for Gouvernor Kemble, see Lawall, 3:141-42, no. 266. This was the view now called 'Early Morning at Cold Spring,' owned by the Montclair Art Museum, New Jersey.
