According to the title, New York's Van Courtland Park is most likely the subject of this landscape painted en plein air. As New York's fourth largest park, Van Cortlandt Park is more than a thousand acres scaling across the ridges and valleys of the northwest Bronx. The painting depicts a figure strolling across a paved walkway in front of the lake on a sunny day. The short brushstrokes and color palette indicate an impressionistic influence.
