Description

PR1214

Winter landscape of horse and barn by George Francis (1790-1873) of Hartford, Connecticut.  Inscribed on the reverse, and dated 1870.

Why is it special? This quintessential New England scene is made all the more interesting by the inscription on the reverse, which reads: Painted by George Francis of Hartford, Connecticut in the 81st year of his age and presented to his niece Mrs. Julia F. Hickok.  Dec. 1870.
