Context: Between 1867 and 1875, Elihu Vedder painted numerous scenes of Umbria, a region in central Italy that lies roughly equidistant between Rome and Florence. These works integrate characteristic features of the Umbrian landscape-wide basins and river valleysflanked by the Umbrian-Marchigian Apennine mountain range-with pastoral, anecdotal details, such as goatherding and dramatic atmospheric effects, to suggest both specificity of place and the evocative qualities of the Italian landscape. Since the early part of the nineteenth century, American artists travelled to Italy to augment their educations and experience the Old World. Vedder continued this tradition by finding inspiration from Italy's varied landscape and rich art-historical traditions.
