Description

This presentation will focus on similarities and differences among the different American painters. Classified as members of The Hudson River School who worked between the years 1825 to 1870. Called the Hudson River School because the painters were all from the New York City, through which the Hudson River flows, this group is the first school of painting that was native to the United States of America. The founder of The Hudson River School of Art was Thomas Cole. Other main artists of the Hudson River School include, Asher Durand, Frederic Church, and Albert Bierstadt. Each of these artists had their own techniques and styles; however, they all shared one thing: a focus on American landscape.
