Picture Gallery

Frederic Edwin Church was a painter, born in Hartford, Connecticut, May 4, 1826. When quite young he became a pupil of Thomas Cole at Catskill, New York, where his first pictures were painted, he early established himself in New York, and in 1849 was elected a member of the National academy.

In 1853 and 1857 he visited South America, and made many sketches of tropical and Andean scenery, which he afterward developed into large pictures. Several years later an expedition to the coast of Labrador gave him material for his great picture entitled "Icebergs," which attracted much attention on its exhibition in London in 1863.
