Description SHEEP IN A LANDSCAPE

Attributed to Susan Walters (1823-1900)
Inscribed to: Eleanor H. Kinch, 1889.
Bordentown, NJ

After many years as an itinerant painter, Susan Waters and her husband settled permanently in Bordentown NJ in 1866. Here Waters painted animal and still life pictures in a sophisticated and academic style. She exhibited two works of animal subjects at the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia. After this she became a local celebrity in Bordentown, best known for her renderings of sheep grazing in landscapes off which this is a fine example.

The relationship between Susan Waters and Eleanor Kinch (1840-1913) is unclear, though Eleanor Kinch was a lifelong resident of Bordentown. This painting was inscribed just a year before Eleanor married for a second time to Edward Clift (1832-1906) of Bordentown.
