Thomas Doughty, 1832

Thomas Doughty was one of the first landscape specialists in America, and is credited along with Thomas Cole and Asher B. Durand as being founder of the Hudson River School of landscape painting. He was especially fond of painting the broad expanses of the Susquehanna River in New York, and remarked toward the end of his life: “How fortunate for a landscape painter to begin and end his days here.” This early work contains a small reclining figure enjoying a view of nature, a motif common to the Hudson River School. The man’s solitary state and absorption in his surroundings exemplify the value placed on nature meditation in the mid-nineteenth century.
