Henry Peters Gray (1819-1877) was one of the great American portrait and genre painters of mid- 19th century America who owed much of his inspiration to study of classical Antiquity. Born in New York City to a wealthy merchant, Gray attended Hamilton College in Dutchess County, New York, where this lovely landscape painting was almost certainly completed during his academic training. Studying under Daniel Huntington after schooling, Gray departed for a Grand Tour of Europe, particularly devoting his studies to the Old Masters in Italy, and returned in 1841 to New York becoming a member and eventual President of the National Academy, succeeding his master, Daniel Huntington. Gray's pieces may be found in many major museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and his "Cleopatra Dissolving the Pearl" hangs in the Grolier club. This excellent painterly landscape of the Hudson River Valley is one of the earliest known works of Gray's, painted at the age of 18. Contained in its original parcel gilt frame, the canvas is marked on the reverse by the art suppliers Edward Dechaux, New York, and is signed and dated by the artist "H.P. Gray fecit 11th June 1837."
