Inness, George(American, 1825-1894)
Born in Newburgh New York, Inness was primarily a landscape painter and engraver who studied under Thomas Sully and Regis-Francois Gignoux. Interested in the more traditional representations over the popular dramatic style of the time. Influenced by his extensive travels through out Europe, Inness was able to capture a variety of different climates and territories. His pieces manage to convey a definite feeling despite their apparent simplicity. Paul Staiti writing for the Oxford Art Dictionary notes that he was frequently criticized for not adhering to the Hudson River school, the predominant landscape style of the period.
