Hudson River School began in New York City in the 1850s and was an association of landscapeists. This group of artist had an academical backdrop, visited the same places and all worked in the Studio Building, the first place New York artist could work.
Thomas Cole, a famous portraitist, is regarded as the founder of the school because he goes to the big tree to become a portraitist. After painting a portrait, he decided to concentrate on landscape in the course of his work. He was very much influenced by Thomas Doughty and his conception of landscape, as well as by J. M. W. Turner and John Martin's historic and romance view of landscape.
After a lot of work and a little happiness, the artist takes a big rest, as one of his illustrations is discovered by some artist of that period in a shop display case. Cole's journeys are evident in his work, bringing a more classical look at the historic and mythic landscape, as in the serial The Course of the Empire, in which he portrayed the work.
It was also another show entitled The Journey of Living, in which he presented a nice sequence for each phase of your childhood, youth, masculinity and age, each with a very different emotion. More and more often, he depicts topics of religion and history in the US landscape of Cole's work.
He has a deep-rooted technical background and his dramatical images are mirrored in the sublime doctrine that has its origins in Britain and brings him close to the natural world and its idealised depiction. She also illustrated sequences from "Leatherstocking", by James Fenimore Cooper. Cole's work was later analysed by other artist following in his steps.
Asher Brown Durand spotted the English landscape artist in 1825 and gradually began to work under his direction. Over twenty years later, after Cole's passing, Durand was appointed director of the group of New York painters and became president of the National Academy of Design - the most important US arts college of the age.
Influenced by the naturalistic plein-air painting of John Constable - that is, he was painting outside - Durand wrote "Letters on Landscape Painting" and set the course for the Hudson River School's work. Though he built his work on Cole's previous productions, he did not like historic motifs depicted in his canvases.
Also the consciously heroically appearing landscape strongly inspired by Cole, Albert Bierstadt and Frederic Kirche are the outstanding artists of this group. His work uses expedition and science instead of historic ones, as does the natural scientist Alexander von Humboldt, whom he also sought as a source of inspirationfor his work.
You can see it in his painting of 1859, The Heart of the Andes. Beer City introduces an ambience of tranquillity into its landscape, as it does in the Sierra Nevada Mountains California, where it represents an almost godly glow that shines on the waters of an idealised world.
In the course of the US War art lords began to develop new esthetic flavours in the landscape by staying in sophisticated resort areas to escape the mess of everyday living. Many landscape artisans emerge who do justice to the new demands. Heade' s work is more dramatic and dramatic than that of his predecessors.
His portraits portray distant countries with detailled flower and plant species, as in Cattelya Orchidee and three Brasilian hummingbirds. His still-lifes include pictures of the flower, such as A Magnolia On Red Velvet. In his work Study of Windsor Castle - in which he probably refers to the Gothic arquitecture of the XIV cent.
Jasper Francis Cropsey was another of the most important painters of this age. In the aftermath of the US war the European arts were no longer influenced by Great Britain but by France, which marked the end of the Hudson River School. When the church died in 1900, the church was no longer a pertinent theme in the arts but today it is regarded as the best scholarly landscape painting.
