[NOTE FROM CONSULTANT: This previously unknown work from a private family, came to light after the 1984 landmark Erastus Salisbury Field exhibition at the Springfield Museum in Springfield Massachusetts, was later examined by painting conservator Emil G. Schnorr and the exhibition curator and art historian Mary Black who determined the work to be by Field. It is not known how many examples from the artist's Plague Series were actually produced by the artist, and other examples currently appear to exist only in museums.]
