I guess I am still steeped in the Foxlair lore, but I absolutely love the Hudson River School...especially the art of Frederic Edwin Church. I have seen some of his enormous and highly detailed paintings in person and can say it is a mind-blowing experience to witness his genius.
This (below) is actually a painting he did of Königssee, Bavaria and is not one of his more iconic Adirondack paintings. It is one of my life's goals to visit Church's studio on the Hudson called, “Olana”. It has been preserved as a museum.
