Advice on the Prairie
Gift of Mrs. J. Maxwell Moran
Ranney painted "genre" paintings, scenes of everyday life on the American frontier. In this painting he portrayed a group of Western immigrants, including a family, camped with their wagon for the evening. They listen to tales of what they will encounter from a mountain man, the representative of an earlier period of frontier history.
