This painting was never intended to hang on a wall. Rather, it was created as part of a wall to decorate a panel underneath a tall window in the parlor of a home in Eagle Mills, New York, near Albany.

The artist was an unusual individual. In addition to painting scenes to decorate rooms in the Albany region, Joseph Hidley was a house painter, a carpenter, and arranger of stuffed birds and dried flowers.

For his underwindow panels, he is thought to have derived his inspiration from European viewbooks, which is why this scene is reminiscent of a Swiss landscape. We are still trying to locate the original view that Hidley copied.
