In 1846, Henry Bowen built Roseland Cottage in his hometown of Woodstock, Connecticut, as a summer home for his family. The architect of the house, Joseph Collins Wells, painted this watercolor image of the house. In painting the house he wanted to do more than document what it looked like. He wanted to give a certain impression about the place.

Imagine yourself in the painting. How does it feel to be there?
