David Johnson was active/lived in New York.  David Johnson is known for landscape, some portrait, and still-life painting.

David Johnson

A landscape painter based in New York City and associated with the second generation of Hudson River School painters, David Johnson was noted for his ability to delineate accurately rock formations and foliage.  He was especially influenced by the work of Hudson River painters Jasper Francis Cropsey, John Casilear, and John Frederick Kensett.  He also painted an occasional still life.

Johnson was born and raised in New York City, but little else is known about his early life.  He studied briefly with Cropsey but said that his best teacher was nature, which he utilized in his paintings from his frequent trips to the Hudson River Valley, especially the areas around West Point and Fort Putnam.
