Our New Painting Location for the Summer OF 2016.
Cedarmere estate in Roslyn Harbor, Long Island, NY - a beautiful setting with seven acres of exceptional landscape and scenic views of Hempstead Harbor. On the grounds of the estate, in addition to the main house, are formal gardens with fountain, woodlands, meadows, marshes and the recently restored Gothic Revival mill. The mill overlooks both the bay and a one-acre pond with a boathouse and a stone bridge.
Cedarmere was for the last 35 years of his life, the country home of William Cullen Bryant (1794-1878), renowned American poet, newspaper editor and civic leader; portions of the main house date back to its initial construction in 1787. Bryant is one of the figures depicted in the iconic painting, Kindred Spirits (above). He stands on the left next to his friend Thomas Cole, founder of the Hudson River School of painting.
