Monday Morning Museum: The Hudson River School

The Hudson River School – America from 1835 to 1870
The Hudson River School was a mid-19th century American art movement embodied by a group of landscape painters whose aesthetic vision was influenced by romanticism. The paintings for which the movement is named depict the Hudson River Valley and the surrounding area, including the Catskill, Adirondack, and the White Mountains; eventually works by the second generation of artists associated with the school expanded to include other locales. – Wikipedia.org

In addition to Alfred Bierstadt (see art example below), others in the Hudson River School include Thomas Cole and Frederic Edwin Church.
