Table of Contents

    Andrew Andrews was a distinguished nineteenth-century painter who created landscape paintings in the style of the Hudson River School. His life was tragically cut short in 1859, leaving critical gaps in his biography. He is said to have studied under Jasper Francis Cropsey, and his panoramic views of nature share stylistic parallels with the early work of Frederic Church. Andrews taught landscape painting in Buffalo, New York, and scholars believe that he exhibited at the American Art-Union and the National Academy of Design under the name of ‘A. Andrews.’ Today, his “View of Lake George” hangs in The White House.
