    In Inness returned to Europe, this time visiting Paris, where he encountered the emerging movement of French Realism: the work of Gustave Courbet et al. This has not happened. This combination of influences would inspire artists such as Joseph Decker and, in his later work, William Keith. In he opened his own studio in New York. He attended the first Impressionist exhibition in Paris at the time, but was unmoved, describing the style as a "sham" and a "passing fad". For its unique status to be appreciated this work should be compared with prominent landscape paintings of the time.

    The work also hints at the effects of Impressionism; although Inness would dismiss the school on a trip to France 13 years later, this work partly comprises a delicate study of light in the style of European proto-Impressionists such as Corot. He began writing a three-volume book, Thomas Eakins. He left behind a son, George Inness Jr, who followed in his father's steps and became a painter, as well as his son-in-law, Jonathan Scott Hartley, who became a sculptor. In he began exhibiting in New York, and later spent a month working with the landscape painter Regis Gignoux. In the foreground we see stumps of trees felled to make way for progress, and the figure of a reclining man looking on at the approaching train.

    The Lackawanna Valley is a masterpiece not because of its subject, but because it is painted with such sensitivity and authority, such beauty and power. Throughout the mids George Inness and Thomas Eakins. book also attended classes at the National Academy of Design, and studied the work of Hudson River School artists Thomas Cole and Asher Durand; "If", Inness later recalled thinking, "these two can be combined, I will try. Long-awaited, this reevaluation of one of the major figures of nineteenth-century American art will prove to be a seminal text in the fields of art history and American studies. Inness by contrast chose - or was paid - to depict human civilization in nature, and as such, the bucolic Lackawanna Valley is an ambiguous work. Two years later Frederic Edwin Church would produce his majestic Niagara, a work which shows no human history, no industry, and no progress, merely the unfettered power of nature at work. This synthesis of natural and manmade elements predicates the work of Precisionist artists such as Charles Sheeler.
