by Frederic Edwin Church

SKU: DF-199 Category: Tags: ,


The artists of the Hudson River School ventured far beyond the New York region suggested in the name that was applied to them. Here, for example, Frederic Church depicts Cotopaxi, an active volcano in Ecuador. The tiny foreground figures suggest the insignificance of people in comparison with the natural wonders that surround them: the volcano, the waterfall, and the lush tropical foliage. A member of the second generation of Romantic landscape painters, Church ranks among the most influential American artists during the period between 1850 and 1875.
