George Inness was a prominent American landscape painter born on May 1, 1825, in Newburgh, NY. He is recognized as one of the most influential American artists of the nineteenth century. Inness was greatly inspired by French Barbizon landscape painting and the radical work of Théodore Rousseau. He distinguished himself from the Hudson River School in his deep use of philosophical and spiritual ideas that inspired his art.
Inness’s fiery career evolved from an early, classic Hudson River School style to a more personal style of intimate landscapes. During his lifetime, he resided in Montclair from 1885 to 1894. Here he was deeply inspired by the natural beauty of the area which contributed tremendously to his later works.
Inness died on August 3, 1894, in Bridge of Allan, Scotland leaving a lasting legacy behind as one of the greatest American landscape painters who offered new interpretations to traditional motifs through transcendent philosophy and spirituality found within nature.
