Thomas Doughty

1793-1856 America/Romanticism-Landscapes


Brief Biography-After rejecting his initial profession as a leather currier, Thomas Doughty of Philadelphia specialised in landscape painting. He had a relatively short tuition period in art; nonetheless, he enjoyed a meteoric rise to being a successful landscapist with his talents quickly recognised. His work centred chiefly around the Hudson River, and Doughty spent time in Washington, Baltimore, New York and Boston. During his Boston stay, he made several trips to the White Mountains. Doughty entered the National Academy of Design and travelled to England twice. He was one of the first recognised artists of the Hudson River School; however, critics say later artists of the movement well exceeded his work.
