Frederic Edwin Church (American, 1826 - 1900)
Church's spectacular landscapes of North and South America, Europe and the Middle East combined dramatic compositions with remarkable light effects. He studied with the landscape painter Thomas Cole and was inspired by his example to depict stirring subjects celebrating the sublime in nature. He settled with his family in Hudson, New York state, on a farm with magnificent views of the Hudson River and Catskill Mountains. Church was the youngest artist to be elected to the National Academy of Design in 1849 and became the central figure of a landscape painters' group known as the 'Hudson River School'.
