"Stump Speaking" is a fine example of the artist's ability to capture the
special subtleties of an early American political scene. In this work, a
dashing politician clad in a pristine white suit directs his speech to a
colorful crowd of locals. The diversity of the audience adds an interesting
and rich quality to the picture: plainly dressed farmers, upright gentlemen
with entranced faces, bored young men with drooping eyelids, fidgeting
children, and even family pets witness the proceedings.
