Frederic Edwin Church: Niagara, 22'' Canvas Print, Framed
Specially produced using the highest quality digital imaging, this reproduction of Frederic Edwin Church's Niagara is printed on canvas and framed in gold wood. As one writer enthusiastically noted, "This is Niagara, with the roar left out!"
This framed print of Frederic Edwin Church's Niagara (1857) is part of our Masterworks collection of reproductions, created using the Gallery's finest-quality digital imaging. The image was printed to Gallery specifications, and the frame was selected as a style appropriate to the period.
Church's majestic canvas reveals the vista from the Canadian shore and is based on oil and pencil sketches he made during several visits to the site in 1856. He was the first to render the spectacle on such a grand scale and with such fine detail, naturalism, and immediacy. The sense of realism is heightened by the non-traditional, panoramic format. Niagara's tremendous success, both in the United States and abroad, secured Frederic Edwin Church's status as the most famous American painter of his time. The acquisition of Niagara by the young Corcoran Gallery of Art in 1876 solidified the institution's reputation and inspired other major artists to seek representation in the collection.
