Context: The White Mountains of New Hampshire were celebrated by artists, travel writers, and naturalists for their sublime wilderness. Thomas Cole and John Frederick Kensett reveled in the untamed scenery, but by the time Winslow Homer arrived on assignment fromHarper's Weekly in 1868, the landscape was dominated by tourists and the comforts they demanded: grand hotels, railroads, and well-groomed trails for walking and riding. Homer's depiction of the eastern landscape as a stage for human activity, particularly tourist activity, rather than a sublime paradise freighted with Christian and nationalistic associations, is characteristic of work produced after the Civil War.
