Description: Signed at lower center right: “TD”

Thomas Doughty was one of the first artists associated with the Hudson River School movement.  His artwork focused on serene landscape and was inspired by scenery of Pennsylvania and New York, especially the Hudson River Valley, and also New England areas. Born in Philadelphia, Thomas Doughty was initially trained in leather manufacturing but in 1820, he turned to art completely.   Encouraged by fellow artist Thomas Sully, Doughty painted the scenery around Philadelphia and learned to master the effects of light and shade and the use of color. Doughty’s works hang in major museums across the country.
