The Landscapes of Frederic Edwin Church

"From the 1850s to the 1870s, Frederic Edwin Church was the leading landscape painter in America. This program traces Church's career from his early studies in the Hudson River Valley with the eminent painter Thomas Cole, through the years when Church's heroic depictions of the natural wonders of the Americas made him the nation's most celebrated landscape painter. It includes footage of the Catskills and of Church's final work of art'Olana,' his splendid house overlooking the Hudson River in upstate New York."
