Concerning the following painting, The Speculator, the Smithsonian exhibit says:
"A rural couple listens skeptically to a representative of the Building Association, identified by the paper in his coat pocket. The salesman—whose top hat, pointed shoes, and umbrella mark him as a city slicker—promises the couple a better life as he unrolls a listing of '1000 Valuable Lots on Rail Road Ave.' Francis William Edmonds's comic genre scenes captured the rough-and-tumble of America's frontiers."
