Hyde Park

Johann Hermann Carmiencke American

Not on view

Born in Hamburg, Germany, Carmiencke trained in Dresden with the Norwegian landscape painter Johann Christian Dahl and enjoyed a successful career in Denmark before revolution and war in northern Europe caused him to emigrate to America in 1851. In Brooklyn, where he settled, he produced landscapes comparable in tone and color to those of the Hudson River School, but more topographical in conception. This broad view looks north across the Hudson to the Picturesque profile of the Catskill Mountains, from the renowned former estate at Hyde Park of New York surgeon Dr. David Hosack. Today it is the site of the Vanderbilt Mansion and the home of President Franklin Roosevelt, both national historic sites.
