A painter in the tradition of the Hudson River School, led by Thomas Cole and Albert Bierstadt, Jesse Talbot was a landscape, portrait and figure painter. From 1844 to 1847, he lived in Patterson, New Jersey, his birthplace. From 1865 to 1873 he was in New York City, and then lived in Roundout, New York, and Hartford, Connecticut.
In Talbot's landscape paintings he, adhering to the tenets of the Hudson River School group, strove to express spirituality through landscape imagery. Much of his inspiration came from the White Mountains in New Hampshire. Recognizing the cultural distinction Talbot had brought to that region, curators of the Saco Museum of Saco, Maine in 2009 had an exhibition that included him.
