Image of Raquette Lake - Painting

Raquette Lake - Painting

Tight group of three deer drinking water near lily pads and blown down trees offshore. Behind the deer the heavily wooded shoreline of softwood telescopes into the middle of the picture and is in deep shadow in contrast to the opposite shore which swings in an arc horizontal across the middle of the canvas to the right border ending in a shadowy frame reflected in the unnatural peaks and buff sky. The sun almost obscured by clouds is nevertheless seen in a fiery attempt to come thru the clouds.

Image of Autumn Morning, Racquette [sic] Lake - Painting

Autumn Morning, Racquette [sic] Lake - Painting

Naturalistic depiction of buck and five does on a marshy lake shore with ducks, forest and mountain in background, fall coloring. This painting is a panoramic landscape of South Pond in late October 1871. Its size, subject and aesthetic quality mark it as one of Tait's masterpieces. Tait painted this canvas in his New York City studio during much of the winter of 1871-72, working from a small study done from nature at South Pond. Tait biographer Warder Cadbury speculates that he titled it Racquette [sic] Lake so that tourists would not spoil his little gem, South Pond, or so that the more well-known name of Raquette Lake would attract a buyer. He exhibited the work at the National Acad

Depicts a large buck deer in water, three ducks flying above him. Brownish grey tones. No inscription, date or identifying number. Apparently painted over earlier work or on some sort of advertising or advertising sketch. Discernible in raking light, arching over top are the letters, "Orange (Bak)ing Powder." This painting was reproduced as a chromolithograph, 18 x 24" in 1873 for the Laflin & Rand Powder Co. of New York by the Peletreau, Raynor & Co. The chromolithographer was F. Jones. A copy is in the Library of Congress. The words "Orange Sporting Powder" appear in the reproduction (and in the original) in an arc over the antlers of the deer. AFT himself probably had a number
