The Hudson River School was an art movement in epic American landscape and seascape painting during the mid to late 1800s. The term school does not refer to a formal school as the word is commonly used, rather it embodies the affiliation of two generations of American painters whose vision was influenced by the aesthetics of Romanticism and the Barbizon School. The name of this movement depicts where this movement began, the Hudson River Valley of New York State, however many of these artists traveled far in their efforts to capture the distant and varied landscapes throughout the United States, such as the frontiers of the American West. They painted the lush greenery of the North-eastern and Southern Mountain ranges to the beautiful earth tones of the Western Grand Canyon, as well as the Rocky Mountains and the Pacific Coast. Works by the second generation artists are often described as examples of Luminism, referring to the almost glowing effects in light their paintings exhibited. Artists in this collection include Albert Bierstadt, Thomas Cole, Frederic Edwin Church, Thomas Moran, Asher Durand, Sanford Robinson Gifford, John Frederick Kensett and many more. If you enjoy photographs by Ansel Adams you will love these paintings as well.
