Mountain Art & Artists
Welcome to our Website devoted to White Mountain art and to the artists who painted in the White Mountains of New Hampshire during the 19th century. The purpose of this site is strictly educational and non-commercial. Our goal is to share information with others who have an interest in White Mountain art. We encourage you to share the information we have on our site with others but please ensure that you adhere to our conditions of use.
We strive for accuracy in the identification of these scenes because we believe the artists themselves were very accurate in their depictions of the topography of the landscape. We sometimes include annotated topographical features of the mountains depicted. If you believe our identifications are inaccurate, please send us an e-mail with your comments. We are also seeking additional images of paintings as well as up-to-date biographical information and source material on the more than 400 painters who were known to have painted in the White Mountains in the 19th century.
