    Private collection, North Carolina.

    According to noted Inness scholar Michael Quick, in letter dated March 2, 2019 which accompanies this lot:

    "[In Afterglow on the Meadow] the dim afterglow of the sun that has just set is reflected in the foreground pond at the left and center, and it softly illuminates a rising meadow and a distant purple ridge. In the middle ground are scattered samplings at the right, and two figures left of center. Marking the edge of the meadow are a dense grove of trees at the center, several slender trees at the right, and a few somewhat more distant trees at left. The bright orange color above the horizon, at the left, tints lower edge of large clouds above, shines through some of the tree foliage at the left, and touches the sparse foliage of the saplings at the center.

    We thank Michael Quick for authenticating this work, which will be included in his George Inness: A Catalogue Raisonné Supplement.
