Asher Brown Durand

(Springfield Township, NJ, 1796 - 1886, Maplewood, NJ)

Asher Durand was one of the central, dominant figures of the Hudson River School. He first achieved respect as an engraver but in the late 1820's he broadened his interests to include oil portraits, landscapes, and occasional history or narrative paintings. From about 1840, Durand painted landscapes almost exclusively and was one of the first artists in America to paint and to exhibit oil studies done directly from nature.
