Subject

Peasants, American culture

Description

This painting was made to serve as a basis for an engraving. Relying to some extent on romanticized French images of peasants, Inman focuses on the innocence of childhood as the healthy boy plucks an insect for bait. The youth and promise of the boy are echoed by the lush virgin landscape in the background.
