Photograph of the painting 'A Passing Cloud' by James Clark Hook (1819-1907). The painting depicts a man and woman in a countryside setting. The woman is seated in the foreground, leaning against a bail of hay. The man, his back facing the viewer, leans into the hay and places his hands to his head. There is a flock of sheep and a sheep herder in the middle ground, on the right. There are hills in the background. An identification number can be seen in the lower left corner.
