Frederic Edwin Church, Cayambe, 1858
From the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston:

Frederic Church achieved great renown in the nineteenth century for his heroic landscape paintings, among them Heart of the Andes (1859, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York), in which he combined on a ten-foot (three-meter) canvas details of lush vegetation with a sweeping vista of valleys, plains, a waterfall, a church, and mountains of the Ecuadoran Andean landscape, culminating in the snow-capped peak of Chimborazo. But Church also conveyed the grandeur of the South American landscape in smaller oil sketches, such as Cayambe. Painted after his second trip to Ecuador, Cayambe shows the volcano of the same name in the distance, behind a lake lined with luxuriant tropical foliage.
