This painting appears in scene when Daniel Day-Lewis congratulate his daughter.

Frederic Church, like most second generation Hudson River School painters, used extraordinary detail, romanticism, and luminism in his paintings. Artists wanted to idealize pastoral scenes that exhibited the wild and free beauty of nature. This tradition carries on in the works of Frederic Church, who idealizes an uninterrupted nature, highlighted by creating excruciatingly detailed art. The emphasis on nature is encouraged by the lack of people, low horizontal lines, and preponderance of sky to enhance the wilderness. Read more at: Wikipedia
