Watkins Glen Resident Artist, Capt. James Hope, Part 1

From 1872 until his death in 1892, landscape artist Capt. James Hope had an art gallery next to the gorge of Watkins Glen. A lesser known figure of the Hudson River School of landscape painters, Hope captured the beauty of the glen on his canvases and realized his life’s dream of supporting himself and his family with his landscape art. Tony Ingraham tells the first half of this story in this encore episode of Walk in the Park (#130). Next episode (131) will complete the tale. Tony originally gave this illustrated presentation in February 2016 to an audience at the Rockwell Museum in Corning, NY.
