America’s first native landscape painter
By William Tylee Ranney Abbott
The paintings of Thomas Doughty represent America’s earliest tradition of landscape painting. His intense admiration for nature resulted in painterly depictions of the utmost truthfulness. The popularity of this new development facilitated the advancement of the landscape painting tradition in the United States, paving the way for future masters such as Thomas Cole and Frederic Edwin Church.
