An Adirondack Aesthetic:
Paintings of Lake George 1860-1890
The Hudson River School was a landscape art movement of the mid nineteenth century. Fusing philosophy, writing and religion with nature, American artists turned from portrait painting to bold depictions of their new continent. The Adirondacks, and Lake George, were an early focus, and the battle between the Age of Reason (Industrialism) and Classic Romanticism (Nature) was engaged. The nation's foremost artists of the time left a legacy for future conservationists to uphold.
