This volume presents, through their paintings, the major artists of the Hudson River School, along with lesser-known figures. Colour illustrations of 78 works are supplemented with biographical sketches and a bibliography in a survey of the ideas, events and figures of the Hudson River School movement. The author explores the diversity of 19th-century Romantic American landscape painting. Highlighted specifically are works by well-known figures such as Thomas Cole, John F. Kensett, Sanford Gifford, Frederic Church, William Trost Richards and Worthington Whittredge, as well as examples of work by lesser-known yet signigicant artists such as Eliza Greaterex, Laura Woodward, Regis Gignoux, Ernest Lotichius and Robert Duncanson. The text is published in conjunction with an exhibition organized by the Westmoreland Museum of American Art, Greensburg, Pennsylvania in summer 1997, which was based on a private collection, acquired over more than 40 years.
