White Mountain Prints and Graphics


                                                                   Artist Prints

Starting in the late 1820s, Thomas Cole and other prominent artists travelled to the White
Mountains.  The paintings they created were often reproduced by engravers, and therefore
reached a wide audience.  Often, their works were reproduced by publishers without giving
credit to the artists.  The works of  Cole, at the bottom of this page, illustrate some of the
unauthorized reproductions.  As the 19th century progressed, many publishers commissioned
well-known  artists to create works for books and magazines.  Lithographs by Currier and Ives,
sometimes without credit, reproduced paintings and they were widely distributed. 
Chromolithographs, by firms including Louis Prang, were also widely distributed.  Many works
were published without identifying artists.

The prints we've included are intended to show examples of the works of some well-known
artists along with unidentified  works.  The total number of 19th century prints is undoubtedly
well into the thousands.  Many of the works here could just as well have been included in the
 Books and Magazine section of this website.  Many of the works in the Book and magazine
section could have been included here-visit both sections.
