Milton H. Lowell was a painter of pastoral New England landscapes and Adirondack Mountain scenes, painting in the same areas as 19th century artists Samuel Coleman, William Hart and George Smillie. While he studied in Boston with Yardley, he was largely self-taught. He was a member of the New Rochelle Art Association, in New York.
Lowell also painted works for art calendars. His son, Orson, would become a well-known painter and illustrator for magazines, books and calendars.
Lowell and his friends George Smilie and Henry Pember Smith repeated versions of this scene with this house by a pond or stream many times and through the seasons.
