    Hudson River School

    In the early nineteenth century, many in this country were searching for a style of art that they could call their own – something uniquely American. Painter, poet, and essayist Thomas Cole (1801-1848) responded to this quest by creating pristine landscape paintings unlike any yet seen. His vision of wild and untouched scenery with majestic mountains and tangled forests stood in stark contrast to the gentle landscape images that had come before.

    Influential people of the nascent New York cultural scene embraced his work enthusiastically, and Cole became the leader of an informal alliance of landscape artists now known as the Hudson River School. Cole, Asher Durand, Frederic Church, Sanford Gifford, Jasper Cropsey, and other painters, along with literary figures such as William Cullen Bryant and James Fenimore Cooper, forged a self-consciously “American” style and landscape vision for what was still a relatively new nation.

    The artists of the Hudson River School were united by their belief that their art might lead to spiritual renewal and contribute to the formation of a uniquely American national culture. Their work established a notion of America as a new Eden, a concept that still resonates with artists, environmentalists, and landscape enthusiasts to this day.

    * Your $250 desposit includes an event planning fee of $50. If you end up going on the trip, $200 will be applied to your lodging. Your entire deposit ($250) is refundable if you cancel before we make lodging arrangements. If you cancel after we make lodging arrangements we will do our best to re-sell your spot but you may forfeit part or all of your registration at that point.
