Sanford Robinson Gifford. Mist Rising at Sunset in the Catskills. 1861. United States. Oil on canvas Sanford Robinson Gifford was a key figure of the Hudson River School, the group of landscape painters that flourished in the New York region in the mid-19th century. The Catskill Mountains were an important subject for Gifford, who made drawings and oil sketches like this one during excursions in the area; such works often served as source material for larger compositions produced later in his studio. Mist Rising at Sunset in the Catskills is a swift, freely rendered depiction of evanescent mist above a pond and brilliantly illuminated clouds amid a low sun. Two men attending a boat on the shore give the mountainous scene a sense of grandeur despite the painting’s small dimensions.
