Fisherman In A Stream is an incredibly captivating oil painting by George Inness. The original artwork was painted in 1857 when Inness was approaching the mid-phase of his career. The artist was one of the greatest American painters of his time. His work is associated with the Hudson River School’s predecessors, but Inness’s artworks are hard to classify. He was also an advocate for the formal innovations of the Barbizon School, which he saw firsthand when he was studying in Paris. Fisherman In A Stream is a joyful painting that presents sunny scenery.
The picture was painted on a horizontal canvas when Inness was about to reach his own artistic ground. He already established himself through the 1850s, becoming part of the National Academy of Design in 1853 and receiving a significant commission to make a Railroad-related piece. During this time, his work was still strongly reminiscent of The Hudson River School. However, once he stated that his ambition was to intertwine the work of Asher Durand and Thomas Cole. Inness went beyond that artistic objective and became an inspirational artist.
Fisherman In A Stream shows sunny settings deep into the countrysides of the United States. The whole work is painted in a profoundly realistic way that marked most of Inness’ career. He later changed to a freer and more gestural approach akin to early European modern painting, favoring color harmony and gestural, almost violent treatment in place of these finely detailed pictures. In his best works, Inness could fuse both manners and alternate between a blurry and sharp treatment.
Here, a man is seen fishing. As usual in his works, the human figure is small and helps evoke nature’s vital force. The audience witnesses the man from a medium distance. He is holding his fishing rod and wearing a black hat. Around him is a shallow lake, and its reflections are painted flawlessly. There is a bank with a small grass area to his left and another to his right. Both have tall, large trees that help to balance the composition. At the top, the sky has an intense orange sky, indicating that the sun is setting and using the sunset’s color as a powerful aesthetic manifestation. Fisherman In A Stream is a breathtaking piece that potently depicts nature.
