Item description for Neue Welt: Die Erfindung der amerikanischen Malerei by Ortrud Westheider Elizabeth Nakin Kornhauser...
When the United States entered the international art scene in the first half of the 19th century, the wide-open spaces of the American wilderness appeared unrivalled and seemingly infinite to pioneer painters such as Thomas Coole and Frederic Edwin Church. A group of artists known as the Hudson River School created wildly romantic paintings in the Catskill Mountains north of New York. Landscape painting was considered the most important art form in America, a testament to national identity and the embodiment of the vision of America as the new "Promised Land".
