Frederic Edwin Church was perhaps the best-known representative of the Hudson River School of landscape painting, as well as one its most traveled. Born in Hartford in 1826, he was the privileged son of Joseph Church, a jeweler and banker, who interceded with Connecticut collector Daniel Wadsworth, to persuade the landscape painter Thomas Cole, to accept his son as a pupil. From 1844 to 1846, Church studied with Cole in his Catskill, New York studio; and accompanied him on sketching sojourns in the Catskill Mountains, and the Berkshires of Massachusetts.  Following his term with Cole, Church established a studio in New York City, and quickly seized a reputation: less for the allegorical landscapes that had distinguished Cole’s output, than for expansive New York and New England views, that synthesized sketches of varying locales, into vivid compositions. In 1857, however, Church leapt to nationwide, and even international prominence, with his seven-foot-wide picture Niagara, (Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.); which stunned spectators in New York and in Great Britain, (where it was shown in 1857 and 1858), with its combination of breadth and uncanny verisimilitude.

Approximately 1890
Oil on Canvas, laid and secured onto the board in preservation; upon framing.
Old original framer's label from New York, which is still present on the reverse.
There are traces of some broken writing/lettering is present, but completely unreadable, at this point. Due to lack of signature, the painting is listed in the manner of Frederic Edwin Church.
Painting attributed in the manner of Hudson River New York School artist, Frederic Edwin Church, (1826-1900). Tiny, curved detailed brushstrokes give a dewy, shimmering, sparkling effect over the landscape; especially evident over the old windmill, covered by moss glimmering in the sun. (Other examples of this technique he employed, are detailed in Frederic Church's paintings:
