The Hudson River School

Nature’s God
The Hudson River School was the first coherent movement or “school” of American art. This group of painters, several of whom lived and worked in the Hudson River region, went about their work with an awareness that they were capturing not just the colors and shapes of the natural world, but the living presence of what the founders of the republic referred to as “Nature’s God.” This theme is important in 21st century spirituality and ecology as well.
