The Hudson River and its Painters chronicles the rise of America's first native school of landscape painters. Using many of the paintings and prints from noted Hudson River artists -- works by such names as Albert Bierstadt, Thomas Cole, Frederic Church, and Asher Durand -- as well as filmed visits to the places that inspired these renderings of the American wilderness, this video attempts to recreate the milieu that inspired a legacy.
