View from the top of Kaaterskill Falls in the Catskill Mountains of New YorkDavid continues his exploration of the Hudson River Painters with a trek to Kaaterskill Falls, located in the Catskill Mountains and painted by many Hudson River artists. In the mid-1800s, Americans were swept with new passions: geology, meteorology, biology and botany. The Hudson River painters were also inspired by these new sciences and a desire to be spiritually and morally uplifting as they created artworks of unsurpassed fidelity to nature. David paints the magnificent wilderness from the top of the 300-foot Kaaterskill Falls, as he discusses the inspiration of artists Thomas Cole, Asher Durand and Sanford Gifford.
