    Private collection, Santa Barbara, California, gift from the above, probably 1933
    By descent to the present owner

    Walter Launt Palmer, most well-known for his snowy landscapes, was an Albany, New York native. Son of prominent American sculptor, Erastus Dow Palmer, he was exposed to the arts at a young age. As a teenager and young adult, Palmer studied with portraitist Charles Loring Elliot and Hudson River School painter Frederic Edwin Church – notably, Church's only student. The young artist's interests appear to have aligned with Church's aesthetic, since he would go on to embrace landscape painting throughout the remainder of his career. His interests in light and color were notable and typical of this period of American Art.
