View on the Delaware. Near Easton, Pensylvania

Man, woman and three children in boat on river paddling to left in image. Rainbow up over mountains in background. From the Inventory Listing of Sidney A. Alpert "View on the Delaware / Near Easton, Penna. - S "

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.
