Biography William D. Winstanley
William Winstanley was one of the earliest landscape painters in America and was active in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. With conventional training in England, he was described as painting the landscape with "sterile recipes" as though it was the English countryside. (Flexner 118)
Sometime before April 1793, Winstanley came to America from England when he was a youth and is known to have sold two Hudson River paintings to George Washington, then President. These works are titled "Morning, Hudson River," and "Evening, Hudson River" and are in the collection of the Mount Vernon Ladies Association, Virginia. He visited Washington DC and painted scenes of the Potomac River, which were also purchased by the President.
