Though Theodore Clement (T.C.) Steele made his living as a portrait painter, he was passionate about landscape and nature painting—he even purchased a studio wagon in order to work while traveling the countryside with his family. Steele eventually settled in Brown County, Indiana, and attracted a following of artists to eventually form the Art Colony of the Midwest. Steele was a member of the Hoosier Group of American regional Impressionist painters, whose ranks included William Forsyth, Otto Stark, and J. Ottis Adams; these artists not only shared a common style, but also all studied abroad before returning to Indiana to pursue landscape painting.
