The Pike River, near Stanbridge, c. 1864

Allan Edson
Canadian, 1846 - 1888
oil on millboard
22.8 x 32.2 cm
Gift of Elizabeth and Edgar Collard, Montreal, 1977
National Gallery of Canada (no. 18938)

This early work by Edson was possibly painted under the direct tutelage of Duncanson. The brilliant sunset and lush landscape with exotic palm-like trees are clearly inspired by Duncanson's "The Land of the Lotus Eaters" (1861).
