This is a painting of Asher Durand.

I am drawn to this painting. The scenery is gorgeous, the mountains in the background, the river, the amazing  trees covered with beautiful leaves seems to say,look at us ,take a picture we are here to entertain you.

The grazing cattle are inviting me to watch them and see the beauty of nature.

Then there is a family sitting under the tree telling me this is fun come and join us.

Asher Durand’s painting is awesome, he has created nature in its perfect setting.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for sharing this lovely painting and your observations about it.

    Durand did many paintings, one of my favorites being “Kindred Spirits.”

    All good wishes,
