This is an original oil on canvas painting by American Hudson River artist James McDougal Hart. The painting measures 30X23 inches, signed and dated 1881 in the lower left corner. This painting came to us in what appears to be the original period frame. The painting had been lined and is in excellent condition. A beautiful work, Hart at his best. "Born in Kilmarnock, Scotland, James Hart was a leading figure of the second generation Hudson River School painters and was known for idyllic landscapes, especially with cows. His family emigrated to Albany, New York in 1830 ". James McDougal Hart served as the Vice President for three years of the National Academy of Design. He became a member in 1859.
