Commentary: Schoonover notes that this landscape was originally “painted for Immanuel Church, but the frame ordered by the church was too large.” To solve the problem, he painted a duplicate for the church (#2411) to fit the frame they had purchased. Subsequently, this painting was sold to Mrs. Burns, a fellow communicant in Immanuel Church, Highlands, on July 17, 1948. It is painted over #1638. (day books)
See #2433 and #2435 for additional views of the same stretch of road that ran from Bushkill to Milford, Pennsylvania.
Provenance: Sold by artist to Mrs. Burns, Wilmington, Delaware (July 17, 1948); descended in family to private collection
