David painting a view of the Hudson River ValleyDavid Dunlop explores the locations, history, techniques and artists who were considered Hudson River painters. Popular from 1825 to 1875, these painters were attracted to the natural grandeur of the new nation and their paintings gave Americans their first vision of national identity and also inspired the creation of a national park system. David and his students explore Olana, Frederic Church's Persian-inspired home and park and paint the same panoramic vistas of the Hudson River Valley painted by Church.
