In the first half of the nineteenth century, a group of painters working in New York City, in addition to like-minded poets and writers, developed a distinctly American vision of the landscape. Their powerful interpretations of American scenery, which came to be known as the Hudson River School, tell the story of how landscape imagery can shape national and cultural identity.
