Indians Bathing--a scene in New England, (painting)
Pratt, H. C.
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 101
"The Indian mother, with her joyous child;/ Sits nursing fondly, on the sandy shore;/ The maidens sport, amid the waters wild,/ Nor fear the warwhoop's scream or cannon's roar. The summer twilight sweetly onward creeps,/ O'er crag and tree, and Lake, and gushing stream./ The forest foliage, calmly silent sleeps,/ And o'er all is spread the evening's golden gleam. [P. 5.]
