But in the mids, Mount Desert Island was a remote and inhospitable wilderness. Its discovery by visiting artists such as Thomas Cole, Frederic Edwin Church, and Sanford Gifford, and its promotion through their paintings and in prints, travel books, and photographs, began a transformation of its landscape into scenic representations. Frederick Church was one of the artists of the Hudson River School, who happened to draw much of his early inspiration from landscapes and seascapes in Maine. This particular book is drawn from the Olana Collection, gathering Church's work of Mount Desert Island on the Atlantic coast and the Mount Katahdin region in interior Maine/5(11). The visit of New York painter Thomas Cole () marked the start of Mount Desert Island’s influx of summer vacationers. Cole founded the Hudson River School, a famous movement of landscape and seascape painters influenced by romantic primitivism. Their art idealized the beauty and grandeur of the natural wilderness.
