Additional information:

In 1815, at the age of twenty-two, Alvan Fisher began his professional career, opening a studio on School Street in Boston. During his first ten years as a painter, he set the tone of his entire career. He traveled extensively painting landscapes, rural scenes, portraits of animals, and portraits of people. The growing popularity of landscape and genre painting coincided with the growing population of the United States and an economically improved middle class. This was the age of democracy and people wanted art that depicted their own contemporary life.

In the movie we can see the painting in hotel room during the conversation between Jay Gatsby and Tom Buchanan.
