This landscape with a wooden railroad or train trestle was painted by American artist Frank Vincent DuMond (1865-1951). DuMond was a native of Rochester, New York, he began his career as an illustrator,and after studying at the Academie Julian Paris, returned to New York, where he embarked on a painting and teaching term at the Art Students League spanning nearly six decades until his death. A painter of diverse talents, he was an accomplished landscape, portrait and still life painter, muralist, and leader of the Tonalist then Impressionist art colonies of Lyme, Connecticut. He was a well known painter of the American Impressionist landscape and the figure, but he will perhaps be remembered as among the most outstanding educators in American art history. Though an accomplished painter, he is said to have considered himself more of an educator than an artist.
