New England Landscape; an open-vista summer landscape of a lake surrounded by distant hills or mountains, under a cloudy sky; in the distant foreground is a small gray house and outbuilding; near the lake's edge is a white-painted house; in the foreground, at right, a wooden fence with open gate; at left, a woman walking back to the nearest gray building; the artist's signature, "J.B. Bristol", is at lower left.


Landscape painter John Bunyan Bristol was born in Hillsdale, New York in 1826. He studied under Henry Ary and exhibited at the National Academy in 1858. From about 1860, Bristol lived in New York City, but summered in New England, which provided the inspiration for many of his paintings. He died in New York City in 1909.
