Hudson River School Cross-Stitch Charts
The Hudson River School was embodied by a group of landscape artists who started a movement in the mid-19th century to capture the beauty of the Hudson River Valley and surrounding area in romanticism style paintings, depicting three themes of America in the 19th century - discovery, exploration and settlement. The rugged remaining wilderness was quickly disappearing, and the artists wanted to capture the beauty of it before it was gone. Artist Thomas Cole is recognized as the founder of the Hudson River School, and most of the finest works were done between 1855 and 1875. One of the largest collections of these paintings can be found at the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, Connecticut.
