The time of the Hudson River School
The HRS flourished until about the time of the centennial (1801-1848). The founder/father of this type of art was Thomas Cole who died in 1848. Soon after Cole died Asher B. Durand became a kind of leader to the people who used this style. Before Durand became the next "leader" he was the president of the National Academy of Design in 1845.
