Additional Details

"This Chateauguay Lake scene shows a local guide, Anthony Sprague, seated. Next to him are Jonathan Bellows and his son Francis. A 12 bedroom hotel was actually on this site but Tait introduced the cabin to emphasize the 'frontier' atmosphere in the painting" -- New Best 50, 28.
