On his visits to Old Lyme, Alten painted agrarian landscapes celebrating the work of farmers in the local fields as they plowed the rocky soil and harvested apples, corn, and salt hay. While there, he resided in the barn-studio of Will Howe Foote (1874-1965), a Grand Rapids native and early member of the Old Lyme artist colony.
