Currier & Ives is known for the many bucolic scenes they produced, such as Suburban Retreat. This rural landscape shows a mother and her children, along with the family dog, relaxing under a tree near the riverbank. Sailboats skim along the water, framed by two shade trees. A large country-house stands on the opposite shore.
