Barton Stone "B.S." Hays (American, 1826-1914). Oil on board painting depicting a landscape with cows in a pasture along a body of water. Signed along the lower right.

Although Hays initially gained popularity for his portraiture - such as his painting of then-governor of Indiana, William Henry Harrison - his focus shifted to still life paintings after his move to Minneapolis and it was these realistic paintings that were his most popular. He also created panorama paintings such as his painting depicting scenes from Harriet Beecher Stowe's "Uncle Tom's Cabin."

Sight; height: 11 1/4 in x width: 15 1/2. Framed; height: 15 1/4 in x width: 19 1/4 in.


No visible cracks, losses, or restoration under UV light. Along the margins, there are a few scattered minute pinholes. Dust collected to the surface, which discolored the original paint slightly; please see the listing image. However, the color is still bold and bright. Wear to the frame. The verso could not be inspected due to the nature of how the artwork is framed.
