Fording the River, Nathaniel Currier

D'Amour Museum of Fine Arts

Riverbank scene. Cattle and goats drinking in river. Man and boy on horse in river, wagon approaching right side toward river.

The riverbank scene depicted in Fording the River exemplifies the bucolic imagery that Currier & Ives often featured in their prints of the American countryside. Westward expansion revealed many beautiful scenes waiting to be enjoyed.
