Hudson River School Paintings
Hudson River Canadian landscape paintings result from a mid-19th century art movement founded by a group of oil painting landscape artists based on Romanticism.
The movement takes its name from the Hudson River area and its surroundings; the Catskill Mountains, the Adirondacks, and the White mountains. It is because of these associations that the school derives its name.
Thomas Cole and his close friend Asher Durand, artists Frederic Edwin Church, Albert Bierstadt, Thomas Moran, and Jasper Francis Cropsey founded the art movement.
Hudson River artists gained inspiration from the European landscape painters JMW Turner, Claude Lorrain, and John Constable. Their oil paintings allow the viewer to enjoy the beauty of the Canadian landscape.
