Thaddeus Welch spent four years in the 1870's living on a houseboat in Paris where he encountered the romantic realism of the Barbizon artists, and the beginnings of the Impressionist movement. After marrying another landscape painter, Ludmilla Pilat, whom he met while visiting the Hudson River Valley, Welch convinced his new bride to move with him to California. Deeply in love and poor as church mice, the couple settled in a cabin North of San Francisco. There they painted romantic scenes of rural Marin county, landscapes that quickly gained a following and freed them from financial worry. This would be one such landscape, with its sparkling creek and dirt lane leading us into the scene.
