(1828 - 1891)
Jervis McEntee was active/lived in New York. Jervis McEntee is known for landscape and coastal view painting.
Jervis McEntee was a landscape painter, born in 1828 in the Hudson
River Valley in Rondout, New York. It was said that 'Nostalgia
may well have been McEntee's middle name", and that he, always attempting to stir emotions in his viewers, often attached
poetry to his paintings when exhibiting them. At a time when the
Civil War and its after effects caused great disruption in America,
McEntee's work may have provided a visual escape for the more
educated. His works are rich with the colors of autumn and
winter, and he, who often painted in the Catskill Mountains, preferred smaller views rather than panoramas. Usually
detailed and simple, his works often reflect a sense of loneliness.
