Evening in Arcady

Evening in Arcady
View of a natural bridge over a river with two women in Arcadian attire along the shore in the foreground. One woman dances by the water's edge and the other is seated under a tree, a lyre in her hands. The sun is setting, highlighting the underside of the natural bridge, and silhouetting a herd of deer in the background along the far shore of the river. On the left two swans swim near the shore.
Artist: Cole, Thomas, 1801-1848, painter.
Medium: Oil on canvas.
