Although best known for his depictions of New York street life, George Luks also had a great passion for landscape painting which he developed on summer trips to Nova Scotia, Maine, the Berkshires, and the Adirondacks. This dramatic painting was executed in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia, near Lake Rossignol. Using bold strokes of intense color applied rapidly and thickly, Luks creates an exciting scene of a fisherman with an upraised rod balanced on a fallen tree in the midst of a fast-moving stream.
