View on the Delaware. Near Easton, Pensylvania

This idealized scene depicts a man navigating the tumultuous waters of the Delaware River with a mother and several children aboard his rowboat. The children are compelled by what they see in the water and seem unaffected by the turbulence. A rainbow enhances the composition and conveys the contentment of a summer afternoon.
