Antique Wooded Landscape Oil On Panel

A 19th century wooded landscape oil on panel depicting an overhanging rock shadowing a dirt road against a backdrop of pine trees, rocks, and mountain. The painting is not signed but attributed to James Hope (1818 – 1892) his name inscribed on the back with the location of Vermont.

James Hope was born in Scotland but came to America with his father at a young age. He settled in Castleton Vermont where he attended the Seminary. When the Civil War broke out, he was commissioned as a Captain with the 2nd Vermont Infantry. He fought in at least 12 battles before ill health forced him to sit on the sidelines and record images of the battles that he witnessed. Scholars say that his paintings of the battle of Antietam, September 19, 1862, were the most detailed visual sources of that decisive battle, as they were painted after the war from sketches he had made during the actual engagement. He retired to Watkins Glen, New York in 1872 where he continued to paint geologic formations in the surrounding hills. His popularity has continued to rise, and collectors of American art eagerly seek his paintings.

The painting is in very good condition, set into the original gilded frame. The frame has had minor restorations.
