Commentary: Schoonover painted three landscapes of the Shoemaker’s farm outside of Bushkill, Pennsylvania. There was a baseball field nearby and on two of the three pictures, he noted en verso and in the day books that there was a baseball game in progress as he worked. For further commentary, see #2134 and 2406.
