Few subjects can inspire the soul and beautify the environment like the best of landscape oil paintings. Whether the subject is a delicate flower nestled between vibrant foliage or wintery country sides alive with wooly sheep, nothing has the diversity or elegance as a masterpiece displaying nature at its finest. While most appreciators of fine art would enjoy a unique masterpiece, most purchases are more suited to the affordable prices of high quality repro paintings or reproductions.

Every era, every style, and every medium has been utilized in creating masterful landscape oil paintings. Creating masterpieces with oil based paint allows the artist a freedom not possible with other mediums. In addition, many of those artworks remain intact and viewable after centuries. Some of the greatest masterpieces today were created by artists from long ago, standing as a testament to the superiority of landscape oil paintings.

Thomas Cole was an English artist born in 1801. The Hudson River School was founded by this artist and was pivotal in the art movement within the United States. Known for realistic depictions of wilderness and country, Thomas Cole was the epitome of American greatness. Interestingly, Thomas Cole was not as talented with portraits as he was with nature, proving that not all masters are great at all things.

“Dream of Arcadia”, “Fountain of Vaucluse”, “The Vesper Hymn”, “Home in The Woods”, and “View of Florence From an Miniato” are all famous masterpieces by Thomas Cole. While the man passed away in 1848 shortly after his 47th birthday, the artwork remained popular, finding homes in private collections and museums around the globe.

Albert Bierstadt was a German-American born in early 1830. In fact, Albert Bierstadt had close ties with the Hudson River School founded by Thomas Cole. Albert was known rather infamously in his day for an almost egotistical indulgence in the use of large canvases. However, Bierstadt emphasized environmental elements such as clouds, fog, and mist in his masterpieces that have been appreciated and highly prized in the decades following his death in 1902.

“Gates of the Yosemite”, “Among the Sierra Nevada”, “Puget Sound on the Pacific Coast”, “Matterhorn”, and “Cho-looke” are all accredited to Albert Bierstadt. Common among many artists, Bierstadt did not experience the popularity of his works during his own lifetime, as most of his works have been celebrated posthumously.  

Born in the fall of 1819, Martin Johnson Heade was known for seascapes and salt march landscape oil paintings. However, Martin Johnson Heade was also well known for his depiction of lotus blossoms, tropical birds, still lifes, and even hummingbirds. He was an American artist that was quite prolific in his life when it came to artwork. There is much debate as to whether or not Heade schooled at the Hudson River School or was simply friends with many of its students.

Before Heade passed in late 1904, popular works he created include: “Sunrise in Nicaragua”, “Passion Flowers with Hummingbirds”, “A Vase of Corn Lilies and Heliotrope”, and “Sunset Over the Marshes.”

The Hudson River School was a pivotal location for many of the popular American artists of today. Many of the masters responsible for breathtaking landscape oil paintings were connected to the school, and the struggles and lives of the artists involved helped future generations.
