Lockwood De Forest (American 1850 - 1932) Hudson Valley # 70, October 12, 1871. Oil on paperboard. 11 x 18 inches. Signed and dated in pencil by the artist. 

De Forest was tutored by Hudson River School Artist, Frederick Church and Jame M Hart. His business partner was Louis Comfort Tiffany and he traveled the world at the end of the 19th century, collecting artifacts from the middle East and India to sell to wealthy collectors. At the same time he did many drawings in the areas he visited. Once he moved to Santa Barbara, California, his work became almost modernist in its representation of the local scenery.
