This is an oil study for Cropsey’s monumental "Valley of Wyoming" (66.113). The view is from a promontory called Inman’s Hill, looking north across the valley, which is intersected by the Susquehanna River. In contrast to the large, elaborately detailed canvas, the present work was painted broadly and quickly.
