View of Salem
Framed; HOA 13; WOA 19; DOA 1 1/4
Watercolor on paper, landscape scene. Two human figures appear in this scene, one is working with a plow attached to two horses in a field which is surrounded by a cross fence. He appears in a side/ profile view. The other man is sitting on a log to the right in the same field, and he appears in a three-quarters view of his face. Holding a sketch pad and writing instruments, he draws the scene. Both men wear hats, jackets and pants. On the fence line in front of the field are purple flowers, while a row of spruce trees is planted along the fence line to the back of this field. Two cut tree trunks remain in the field. More fields appear in the background leading the viewer’s eye to the houses in the background. These and a barn appear in clusters to the left, then further back in the center, and then to the right of the scene.
