Landscape with Shepherd

Robert S. Duncanson American

Not on view

Duncanson was born free in upstate New York to a family of carpenters and housepainters. An ambitious self-taught artist, he established a successful career in the Midwest, especially in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he produced landscapes that suggest the strong influence of Thomas Cole. While Duncanson painted many actual sites, "Landscape with Shepherd" typifies the idyllic pastoral view he favored.
