1876
Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 150 (Sale info: To Be Distributed).
This elaborate picture is one of those scenes peculiar to the West, which have stamped Mr. Bingham as an artist of the first order. His pictures are eagerly sought and command a high price. In this picture a broad stretch of the Missouri is seen, over which hangs that hazy atmosphere peculiar to it. In the foreground is a woodyard. Two men have discovered a boat in the distance, and are watching for the signal indicating that it is wanted. A third lounges on the bank with his feet hanging over the water, smoking his pipe. The accessories of the wood piles, axes, whisky jug, &c., go to make up a scene that cannot be mistaken by any one who has traveled on the Western waters. [P. 16.] 30 x 25. [P. 18.]
