This gorgeous river landscape, with figures strolling along the banks, takes the viewer to the bucolic world of the European countryside of the Victorian era. Called "Strolling by a Stream," it is signed by Ernest Parton, a painter who lived from 1845 to 1933 and worked in both New York and Britain. It is located at GasLamp Too's Booth T-360.

Parton was born into a talented family; all of his siblings who survived to adulthood became fine artists. They grew up in the riverside community of Hudson, New York, located in the Hudson River Valley, which was renowned for the many esteemed painters of the Hudson River School.

Patton ultimately become an expatriate to England, where he enjoyed great success for 50 years with his paintings of the English and French countryside.

Parton's works were shown in the major salons and exhibitions of the day including the Royal Academy, The Royal Scottish Academy and the National Academy of Design in New York, the Paris Salon, the Exposition Universelle and the Chicago World's Fair.
