From late summer of 1908 to early winter of 1909, Suzor-Coté was the guest of the rich American Thomas Fortune Ryan (1851-1928) at Oak Ridge, his rural estate in Lovington, Virginia. The artist painted four murals representing spectacular views of the site and its buildings. In the same Neo-Impressionist style as the murals, the Museum’s painting presents another view of Oak Ridge.
