John Williamson

This landscape was created by Scottish-born painter John Williamson, who immigrated to the United States as a child. He worked in the style of the Hudson River School, depicting dramatic mountain vistas. In Lake Champlain from Mount Mansfield, Vermont, to emphasize the scale and vastness of nature, he included two Abenaki men. Prior to settlement by European and then American colonists, Mount Mansfield was known by Abenaki residents as Mozodepowadso, or Moosehead.
