Kensett was a selfless individual known for his charity work and helping fellow artists.
After railroad service to the area was improved in the early 1850s, the White Mountains in New Hampshire became a favored destination for tourists and artists seeking to commune with nature. New York-based Kensett painted several views, including this distant rendering across the Saco River of Mount Chocorua, one of the most distinctive peaks in the region.
