Frederic Edwin Church

182 Discovered works of art  •  ID: #1771
American art   •   Frederic Edwin Church @ Wikipedia

Born into economic independence, Frederic Edwin Church devoted himself to painting. The love of the landscape of his home Connecticut let him create detailed pictures.

With the connection to his teacher and mentor Thomas Cole Church went away from the pure reproduction of the seen and gave his pictures symbolic character and something Gleichnishaftes. His talent and precise portrayal made the artist a leading representative of the Hudson River School. Inspired by Alexander von Humboldt's pictorial travelogues, Church moved to distant lands. He traveled to New York City in the summer months and spent the rest of the year making pictures based on his sketches and memories. The finished works are so real that they give the viewer the impression of reality. But they are composed of real fragments with symbols, often religious and patriotic in nature.

With The Andes of Ecuador and The Heart of the Andes, two large-format compositions have been created from sketches. The impressive real nature of the landscapes testify to the great skills of the Frederic Edwin Church. © Meisterdrucke
