The Athenaeum By David Leister

The Athenaeum By David Leister


Original Oil on Canvas

18×24 Unframed

The Athenaeum after William Trost Richards – I attempted to make a fairly close copy of this beautiful painting by Richards, but I failed somewhat. My painting is 18×24 inches and his is 19×32 inches. I enjoy all of Richards’ paintings and aspire to produce paintings in his style.

William Trost Richards was an American landscape artist. He was associated with both the Hudson River School and the American Pre-Raphaelite movement. Richards rejected the romanticized and stylized approach of other Hudson River painters and instead insisted on meticulous factual renderings. His views of the White Mountains are almost photographic in their realism. In later years, Richards painted almost exclusively marine watercolors.
