Splendid Geyser, Yellowstone National Park
Stuart spent several seasons sketching in Yellowstone. While painting the Park's wonders, he also noted more mundane aspects in his diaries. On July 17, 1885 he wrote: "Made a color sketch of Old Faithful in forenoon. Also a color sketch of Splendid in afternoon. Had beans and bacon for supper. The mosquitos tormented us most dreadfully."
