  • More Info


The Hudson River School was a mid-19th century American art movement embodied by a group of landscape painters whose aesthetic vision was influenced by romanticism. The paintings for which the movement is named depict the Hudson River Valley and the surrounding area, including the Catskill, Adirondack, and the White Mountains.

What is so curious about this movement from that time is that 90% of the works were unsigned. This painting, also is not signed but faintly en verso, on the frame it reads: "Lake George by C. G. White".

C. G. White, possible a first generation or pre-generational artist of the Hudson River School movement has left us with a now antique, oil painting on canvas, of Lake George (NY State Adirondack Park), a painting of a mountain with the lake in the foreground.

This is a gently, quiet and atmospheric landscape rather than the 'sublime', or luminous paintings of the great names from that movement.

Lake George was recurring subject for the Hudson River School of landscape painters being covered by artists like, Samuel Griggs, Martin Johnson, James David Smillie, Thomas Doughty, Andrew Melrose and probably the most well known, John Frederick Kensett. There were many other wonderful artists that came here to work these vistas.

C. G. White was possibly an earlier visitor to the Lake with a more 'primitive' style that reminds me of other antique folk art paintings I've come across; the frame, however is quite ornate for a folk art painting which usually have basic frames with them. This original frame has lost some of the patina on some sides and corners. It's still attractive enough to hang as is.
