The Hudson River School

By Linda Tancs

The Hudson River School was an American art movement of the 19th century, a group of New York City-based landscape painters that emerged about 1850 under the influence of the English émigré Thomas Cole. Cole’s artistry was inspired by the Catskill region, a place he visited for the first time in 1825 on a sketching trip. His home, Cedar Grove, is a National Historic Site located in the beautiful Hudson Valley in the Village of Catskill, New York, right near the Rip Van Winkle Bridge. Open May through October, his home and studios offer sweeping views of the Catskill Mountains.
