White Mountains, Mount Chocorua
White Mountains, Mount Chocorua
The Hudson River School acquired its name from a critic who intended it as a sly dig at the fact that the early painters of the movement painted scenes in and around the White Mountains, Peekskills, and Adirondacks of upper New York and New England. Later members of the school found themselves traveling farther and farther west; the actual location was always less important than the evocation of an unspoiled landscape as in this painting of "White Mountains, Mt. Chocorua" by the father of the movement, Thomas Cole (1779-1851).
