John Bunyan Bristol, American 1826-1909
18" x 30" oil on canvas, signed lower right, unlined on original stretchers and what appears to be the original frame, a view of the Berkshire mountains. Bio from Born in Hillsdale, near Hudson, New York, John Bristol was primarily a self-taught artist. He did study briefly with the landscapist Henry Ary, who moved to the Hudson area in the early 1840s. Painters in Hudson were noted as landscape specialists, and Ary, who was known for his picturesque views of the town and nearby Mount Merino, was the instructor in painting and drawing at the Hudson Female Academy, and had some influence on artists in the area. John Bristol exhibited at the National Academy of Design from 1858 to 1900, was elected an associate academician in 1860, and a member in 1875. Although Bristol lived in New York City, he traveled and painted throughout New England almost every summer. He was a member of the Century Association from 1873 to 1909. Bristol exhibited at the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia in 1876 where he was awarded a medal, at the Paris Exposition of 1889, where he won a prize, and at the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo in 1901 where he also received a medal. His work is preserved at the Peabody Institute in Baltimore. Source: David Dearinger, Editor, "John Bunyan Bristol", Paintings and Sculpture in the Academy of the National Academy of Design, p. 68
