Executed in 1855, when the site was already highly industrialized, this painting shows the falls before European settlement. It is an idyllic image, establishing the northern Mississippi as part of a romantic past, when the Northwest Territory was a wilderness paradise and Native Americans lived in peaceful harmony with nature.
