This image of Frederick E. Church's Niagara Falls' Horseshoe Falls was painted in 1857. He also painted American Falls. A member of the Hudson River School of painters led by Thomas Cole, Church's Niagara paintings are held by the Corcoran Gallery in Washington. Corcoran, also a college, is an amazing resource. As neighbors of Niagara, its majestic power is worth a regular visit.
