Hudson River School Painters
Born in New York City, John Casilear was a leading Hudson River School* painter, known for serene landscapes that reflect delicate detailing he learned as an engraver and his interest in Luminism* or the reflection of light on natural forms.

He began his study with master engraver Peter Maverick and then studied landscape painting with Asher Durand.  To earn money, Casilear worked for many years as an engraver for the American Bank Note Company and later with his own firm. (showing 500 of 9383 characters).
