Henry Ary (1802 - 1859)

Henry Ary was a native of Rhode Island and an American landscape artist.

Ary was a painter in the Hudson River School who emphasized realism, attention to detail and a characteristic use of light that added to the lifelike execution of their scenes. The Hudson River painters were among the first to commit to serious artistic works the natural beauty of the American northeast. Their paintings were typically pastoral, serene and represented the majesty of nature in a way that invited the viewers eyes to take in every part of the painting.

Beginning his career as a painter of portraits, Ary lived for a time in Catskill where he first applied his talents to landscape art after being persuaded to explore the field by his neighbor. He moved to Hudson in 1844 and the Hudson River and the surrounding environs became the almost exclusive subject of his paintings.

Henry Ary was an accomplished artist who exhibited at the National Academy of Design in New York and at the American Art Union. His works are today part of the collections of noteworthy institutions such as the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Albany Institute of Art and the Cornell Fine Arts Museum.
