Hudson River School

Cultivating A Tradition

Season 1, Episode 2 of 2

The Hudson River School was America's first fraternity of landscape painters started by Thomas Cole and Asher Durand. Part 2 will focus on the second generation of Hudson River School artists: Sanford Gifford, John Kensett, Fitz Henry Lane, and others, who would challenge traditionalism, and expand their palettes with a sophisticated technique that was reflective, atmospheric and immersed in light. This artistic innovation would later be hailed as "The Luminist Movement!"
