Trees within artwork – part II

Following on from my post a week or two ago regarding trees featured in painting by Albert Bierstadt, I looked into his background and found that he was a member of the Hudson River School – a group of artists who painted landscapes in the traditional ‘romantic’ style. From there, I took a look at some paintings by other members of the group, and the following are a few of my favourites – though, if I am honest, they are all absolutely sublime.
