In his work, the artist captures the natural beauty of a place and lets his viewers wander around the landscape. Inness is known for his depictions of the Pacific Coast and the Rocky Mountains.

The artist started his career studying the landscapes of the Hudson River School. In his 30s, he began to encounter European artists and was influenced by the Barbizon style. During this time, he visited Italy, where he was influenced by the work of Claude Lorrain. This inspired Inness to continue his study of the Hudson Valley School, which had a more modern approach. In 1845, he exhibited his first paintings at the National Academy of Design.
