Thomas Chambers capitalized on people's interest in the American landscape. He is noted for his many picturesque views of early 19th-century America, including this one of the United States Military Academy at West Point on the Hudson River. Chambers worked from personal observation, but also consulted many British and American prints for his paintings. You should not be surprised if you visit other museums and see a painting similar to this one. At least six other views of West Point were painted by Chambers.

A New York collector driving through Moses’s home town of Hoosick Falls, New York, saw her paintings in a drugstore, bought them, and bought more after visiting her at her farm. She had her first exhibition in 1940. In her biography, she wrote: "I look back on my life like a good day's work, it was done and I feel satisfied with it. I was happy and contented, I knew nothing better and made the best out of what life offered. And life is what we make it, always has been, always will be."

He recalled happy moments there in brilliant watercolors, so remarkable in their energy and hue that they were likened, in Prendergast's day, to "an explosion in a color factory." Trained as a theater poster painter, Prendergast became extraordinarily facile in watercolor, and he employed it throughout his career. The fluid medium was especially appropriate to Prendergast's expressions of the momentary, as the dance of light across the landscape and the rhythmic movements of bathers and picnickers could be suggested in quick dashes of luminous color. Under the influence of French post-impressionistic painting, Prendergast's watercolors became increasingly abstract. This late example is typical in its brevity. The design is realized through a loose pattern of strong primary and secondary colors set against the bright white ground. Much of the sheet has been left to create scattered highlights and to heighten the viewer's awareness of the work as pure paint on paper.
