James M. Hart - Landscape with Cattle

James M. Hart (1828-1901), British-American
Landscape with Cattle, 1872
OIL ON CANVAS, 20 ¼ x 34 ½ inches
Gift of Horace Fairbanks

This quiet idyll is typical of the post-Civil War paintings of James Hart. A herd of cattle, trailing into the distance at the left, leads the viewer's eye from the foreground back to the rural village in the distance in a lyric style and nostalgic sensibility that evoke the approaches of the French Barbizon painters of mid-century.
