"A member of the second generation of Hudson River School artists, William Hart was highly respected by both his peers and connoisseurs, but was also an individualist when it came to how he interpreted Nature. This especially holds true in his smaller compositions, such as Waterfall in the Woods. Using just a few key elements – a gentle stream flanked on either side by a stony ridge and a thicket of trees filled with gold and red leaves – he conveys the distinct feeling of a warm autumn day, and proves the old adage that ‘less is more.’"
-Abbot (Bill) W. Vose, President
