Gift of the artist
Gloss:
Leigh painted Panning Gold, Wyoming late in his life, although the study for the landscape was probably painted on one of his trips to Wyoming early in the century. Although his academic training in Munich often led him to paint his figures in a mannered style, this figure of a miner exhibits a complicated but naturalistic pose.
