Those sketches remained a creative wellspring for him, and in later years he made additional paintings based on them. He painted this view of St. Anthony Falls (in Minneapolis) while he was living in Düsseldorf, Germany.  Wikipedia.  Note native American smoking long pipe and enjoying the scene in bottom left.
