This handsome Paintings of the Hudson River School address book features 40 full-color reproductions of this American group's work. The achievement of the loose affiliation of painters, many of whom never met each other, extended far beyond the shores of the Hudson River. Cole traveled to Sicily; Alfred Bierstadt painted the Rockies; Martin Johnson Heade painted hummingbirds in Brazil. Whether the mood is serene or tempestuous, what unites these artists is a precision, an attention to light, and a commitment to evoking strong emotions through landscape.
LACMA's exhibition Nature and the American Vision: The Hudson River School explores this era and highlights different paintings by many of the same artists.
