During the later 19th century, when European artists were influencing American landscapists, George Inness looked to France for stylistic inspiration. After a trip to Europe in 1853 and 1854, which brought him into contact with contemporary French painters, Inness adopted a looser way of handling paint. By the 1880s he was interested in conveying the spiritual aspects of nature.
