Painting identification: Who painted this? A friend saw it at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. He said it was a 19th century American painting hanging in a visible storage area and not in a regular gallery and that it wasn't labeled. Thanks!

Best answer: Yep, here's the Met's information from its collection database.

Google's new reverse image search is handy for lookups like this. On the image search bar click on the camera icon on the right, then enter the URL for the image.

(Yeah, that's why I linked to the Google image search from your picture. I wasn't trying to be snotty -- I was trying to show you the cool new thing they have.)

Response by poster: I wasn't aware of the new Google feature so that will be helpful in the future. Thanks guys!
