Worthington Whittredge first arrived in New York City in August of 1859. During his first weeks as a New Yorker, he lived like a tourist, visiting the different sites New York had to offer. During one visit to the New York Historical Society, he was exposed to the works of Thomas Cole and Asher Durand and immediately wanted to be a part of the Hudson River school. After submitting a painting to the National Academy of Design and later being elected as an associate member of the Academy in the winter of 1860, Whittredge had spent the summer sketching the Hudson River. During this period Whittredge was looking to define himself as an American artist after a decade abroad in Europe.
No Worthington Whittredge works available at this time.
