Hudson River School


The first homegrown American artistic school and the dominant American artistic movement of the 19th century, holding sway between approximately 1825 and 1870. The name derives from the fact that many, although not all, the members were inspired by the natural beauty of the Hudson River Valley and the surrounding area. The school’s style is romantic, celebrating nature and its contemplation through plein air painting.
