Description

  • The Hudson River School: Artistic Pioneers

    In the vicinity of New York's Hudson River Valley, the Adirondack Mountains, Catskill Mountains, and the White Mountains of New Hampshire, a group of American painters led by British born artist Thomas Cole forged an artistic vision of the American wilderŽness. This was the first American school of landscape painting that emerged between 1825 and 1880. Men with the names of (Thomas) Cole, (Asher) Durand, (Jasper) Cropsey, (Albert) Bierstadt, and (Frederic) Church would impress the world with their creative brilliance and wondrous vision. On canvas they would bring to life 19th century America through imagination, interpretation, color and conviction, and they would craft an idealistic, identifiable narrative of an ever-changing nation. This template would soon attract fervid followers and avid admirers.
    The Hudson River School: Artistic Pioneers focuses on the story of these men and their message, its founder Thomas Cole, and other influential celebrants of this movement. These artistic pioneers and like-minded devotees came to reverently be known as The Hudson River School.
