White Mountain landscapes


February 29, 1996|By John Dorsey

The Hudson River School of 19th century landscape painters is extremely well known, but there was another group, more obscure today, that painted in the White Mountains of New Hampshire from the mid-19th to the early 20th century. Museum-goers today may not be familiar with such names as Benjamin Champney, William Paskell, Daniel Santry, John Enneking, Samuel Landcaster Gerry and John Ross Key (grandson of Francis Scott Key), but like the Hudson River artists, they painted large-scale romantic works that glorified the landscape. An exhibit of 52 of these paintings, titled "White Mountain Painters: 1834-1926," is now on view at St. John's College's Mitchell Gallery in Annapolis.

At the Mitchell Gallery, St. John's College, 60 College Ave., Annapolis, through March 30. Noon to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays and 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Fridays. Call (410) 626-2556.
