Wood was a Quaker painter who lived and worked primarily in the Germantown area of Philadelphia. From the 1860s onwards, he also spent summers in the Adirondacks near Elizabethtown, New York. He studied and exhibited at PAFA and the National Academy of Design. Like many of his colleagues, he was influenced by the writings of English artist John Ruskin, who promoted life studies of nature. Wood was a member of the Philadelphia Sketch Club, and he became known for his landscapes and genre paintings, such as this watercolor rendering of children warming their hands near a wood-burning stove.
