This is a luminous original etching of a rural watermill at twilight by American artist Charles Mielatz. The image size is 19 3/4 x 11 3/4 inches, published in 1886 by Fishel, Adler & Schwartz, remarque in the lower margin, pencil signed. Mielatz was born in Germany but came to the United States as a young boy, studying at the Chicago School of Design, although much of his etching technique was self taught. Mielatz was a member of New York Etching Club and was one of the first etchers elected to the National Academy of Design, where he was also the chief instructor of etching for many years. This is one of Mielatz's early etchings, which like most of his early work is done in the American painter-etcher style with a tonalist inspired sense of fading light.

This engraving by James Smillie measures 15 x 22 3/4 inches. Created after four paintings by Hudson River School founder Thomas Cole, this early lettered proof impression, published in Boston by L.A. Elliot, reads, "From the original Painting by Thomas Cole, in the possession of Rev.d Gorham D. Abbott, Spingler Institute, New York", under the title on the lower margin. Also included on the lower margin is a poem by J.H. Daniels. In 1842 Thomas Cole did a series of paintings that represented an allegory for the four stages of life; childhood, youth, manhood, and old age. Each phase accompanied by a guardian angel. In "Old Age" the voyager is looking across the river of life towards an angel filled sky, ready to enter the kingdom of heaven. Cole's paintings were converted to engravings after his death and widely distributed during "The Third Awakening", a period of religious activism from the late 1850's to the early 1900's.
