Thomas Doughty

1793-1856 America-Romanticism Landscapes

 

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