Hudson River Scene

circa 1830-1840

Thomas Doughty (American, 1793 - 1856)

Like his colleague Thomas Cole, Thomas Doughty was one of the first American artists to concentrate exclusively on the landscape as his primary subject matter. The rugged topography of the Hudson River valley to the north of New York City was a favorite subject of these early landscape painters, most of whom lived in the city.
