Sample Text
The movement now called the Hudson River School came to embody the ideals sought by Americans in views of their country. It is so named because many of the artists did landscapes up and down the length of the Hudson River in New York. It was these scenes that formed the kernel for the flowering of American landscape paintings. Many of these artists also did landscapes all over New England and New York. In the 1860s, the urge to present the grandeur and awesome beauty of the newly opened western territories led many of the Hudson River School artists to go to the West.
