About this title

Synopsis:

The Hudson River School is really the first coherent school of American art and it helped shape the mythos of the American landscape. The artists of the School, working from 1825 to 1875, infused the American landscape with the dreams and ambitions of a young nation poised for greatness.

Beginning with the works of Thomas Cole, acknowledged founder and key figure in the establishment of the School, landscape art became the prevalent genre of nineteenth-century painting. Cole, whose dramatic and colorful landscapes are among the most impressive of the group, may be said to have been its leader during the its most active years. The work of over 20 artists is included here, including paintings by Henry Inman, Jasper Cropsey, Frederic E. Church, George Inness, Sanford Gifford, Martin Johnson Heade, Albert Bierstadt, William Stanley Haseltine, and Thomas Moran.
