CIR 1 Durand painting: "In the Mohawk Valley." 46.4 x 31.8 cm
This oil on canvas painting has all the subtle brushwork of Durand and evidence of the contrast between settler and wilderness typical of his work. With gently rolling hills, rock-strewn stream, and trees depicted in summer green, the painting bears witness to the pastoral natural beauty of the Mohawk Valley.
