Title

Harbor Island, Lake George, NY

Description

David Johnson was a second-generation school of the Hudson River School who studied with Jasper Francis Cropsey and was friends with his contemporaries John Frederick Kensett and John William Casilear. This is one of several paintings Johnson made of Lack George, which was a popular subject due to its spectacular setting, constantly changing weather, and relative ease of access. Here, we are looking through a narrow passage between the Harbor Islands towards the Tongue Mountain Range, specifically Brown Mountain and its distinctive cliffs. A light rain falls upon the water, from a squall either approaching or having passed.
