Painting (Visual work)
George Washington Mark was a successful house, sign, and furniture painter in Greenfield, Massachusetts in the early 1800s. Sometime in the 1830s and 40s, he tried his hand at more artistic endeavors creating paintings of local interest--generally landscapes and historic subjects. In the early 1840s, he opened a gallery of his own works in Greenfield -- this painting is considered his masterpiece.
