Description

"The Romantic Landscape journeys through the four seasons of the Hudson Valley, immortalized by the Hudson Valley Painters. Through color-and computer-enhanced photographs, Stan Lichens has captured the mystique and spectacular scenery of this historic region. Sun-dappled valleys, rugged river terrain, vast mountains and forests, and gorgeous homes abound throughout the historic Hudson Valley. Among the residential portraits are The Locusts, a nineteenth-century estate in Staatsburg; the Vanderbilt estate in Hyde Park; artist Frederic Church's Olana in Hudson; and Montgomery Place, one of the country's most beautiful estates, in Red Hook. Equally dramatic are Lichens' nature portraits of Haines Falls, farm-land in Clinton Corners, the Rosendale Caves, wheatfields in Ancramdale, and a host of other inviting, perfect images captured at the perfect moment of the season.

Review quote

"Of all the scenery of the Hudson, the Kaatskill Mountains had the most witching effect on my boyish imagination.
