Welcome to our totally disorganized art museum! The challenge is to help us identify all the masterworks in our virtual museum. We'll post a piece of the painting and one clue to get you started. Can you name the artist and the title of the painting?

Pieces of the painting and clues to the artist's identity will be added every 24 hours until we have a winner, then the next painting in our collection will be posted. Feel free to use any resources at your disposal to help in your search. Challenge winners will receive a shiny award badge that we will add below their profile image. You will retain this award until someone else wins the award.

The AHM Challenge is open to all forum members, not just ws oil painters, so join in and have some fun with us!

If you would like to host a AHM Challenge painting; please send a PM to the Challenge Moderator Callie to receive instructions and notice when to post your painting. Be prepared to check in frequently while hosting a challenge!



Clue = Nationality - American

I haven't found the painting yet, but the Hudson River School was born in 1825

Darn it! I was "cruising along the Hudson" the second I saw the trees and started trolling through HRS paintings when I realized I was about to be late for work I even googled "bucolic landscapes" because I thought this had cows/farm animals in it, before I started searching by artist.
I found this by Cole and figured I was on the right track:

Cole does look really similar to Inness Callie. Very similar scene and style. Smile
