Frederic Edwin Church was an American landscape painter who was considered one of the leading artists of the Hudson River School of landscape painting, a popular movement in the mid to late nineteenth century. Born into a relatively wealthy family in Hartford, Connecticut in the middle of 1826, their financial security allowed Church to follow his dream of becoming an artist. He received his first formal training from William James Stillman and later Thomas Cole, the artist most widely associated with the Hudson River School. Throughout his career, ideas for the oil paintings of Frederic Edwin Church were conceived through his many travels (particularly to South America) and it was through these trips that Church gained an even deeper appreciation and desire to convey the majesty of nature through his art. He died in 1900 while he was living in New York, the center of the art world in the United States at that time, leaving his wife and four children. Frederic Edwin Church paintings contain a vast experience of landscapes from around the Western world. His philosophy on painting was that each work should not only find a way of expressing the physical characteristics of the world, but also to invoke a deeper understanding of the human condition or illuminate new ideas and appreciations. With this philosophy, the paintings of Frederic Edwin Church were largely successful as he was reputed to be among the more admired landscape painters of his generation. He also believed that art was one of the best ways to align viewers with the majesty of the harmony within Godís created universe. As new ideas involving Darwinís philosophy of natural selection and a reduced emphasis on the purposeful creation of the world by God, some of the philosophies behind the oil paintings of Frederic Edwin Church began to fall by the wayside. However, Frederic Edwin Church artwork remained well respected by critics and novice art lovers alike until the beginning of the twentieth century when landscape painting had lost its popularity and widespread exposure due to newer, more progressive movements towards modern art. Some of the most famous and important paintings of Frederic Edwin Church are titled: Magdalena River, Niagara Falls, Cayambe, Iceberg, Scene on Catskill Creek, Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Rainy Season in the Tropics, The Falls of Tequendama, The Andes of Ecuador, Twilight in the Wilderness, El Rio de Luz, Cotopaxi, and Heart of the Andes. These paintings can be viewed in prestigious museums around the United States including the National Gallery and the Detroit Institute for the Arts. However, for any aficionado of Frederic Edwin Churchís paintings, one necessary place to visit is his estate along the Hudson River called which consists of eighteen pristine acres and the original castle inspired by Middle Eastern aesthetics called Olana. The site is a registered historic site which is open to the public and can provide a deeper view into the atmosphere that Church was surrounded by during the creation of many of the most important paintings of his career.
