The Hudson River Valley School 2020 Wall Calendar

$ 14.99


Thomas Cole (American, 1801–1848) wrote that the sky is “the soul of all scenery” and that “for variety and magnificence American skies are unsurpassed.” His reverence extended to the American landscape, and in 1825, after a sketching trip into New York’s Catskill wilderness, his depictions of the area launched the nation’s first native art movement. The Hudson River Valley school arose during a period of exploration, expansion, and a growing desire to preserve areas of unspoiled beauty. Artists such as Cole and his former student Frederic Edwin Church (1826–1900) paid homage to the play of light on sky, water, and land as they infused their work with the sense of humankind’s smallness in the face of natural grandeur.
