Title: Chouteau's Pond

Description: When Henry Lewis donated this painting to the Missouri Historical Society in 1901, he wrote that he painted it in 1900 when he was 82 years old from a sketch he had completed in 1847. Though Lewis may well have sketched Chouteau's Pond in 1847, this painting is clearly copied, with some modifications, from artist J.C. Wild's lithograph, View of St. Louis from South of Chouteau's Lake, published in 1840.
