Eye Candy for Today: George Inness landscape study

On Wikimedia Commons. As far as I can tell, the original is in a private collection.

In this small but strikingly beautiful study (9×13 in; 23x33m), we get an uncharacteristic glimpse of Inness wielding the brush. The brief notations of the animals and buildings are remarkable for their naturalistic appearance when viewed from a slight distance.
