During the 1850s George Inness was commissioned by the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad to depict the progress of the railway’s growth in America. In this canvas, a locomotive is shown departing from the DLWR’s first roundhouse at Scranton, Pennsylvania. In the foreground, a figure reclines upon the hilltop. The National Gallery in Washington comments that Inness’s “inclusion of numerous tree stumps in the picture’s foreground, although accurate, lends an important note of ambiguity to the work.”
