The Hudson Valley Painters . Fanciful Landscape, by Thomas Doughty, 1834. Many of the landscapes produced in the eighteenth century were strictly topographical; views of towns or beauty spots and were often made by military men. In the early decades of the nineteenth, landscape began to be created as pure and ideal. View of Central Park 1932 (conte crayon) based on a photograph and took on the quality of a photo, a taste of what would become Photo-Realism 30 years later.

Evans's images now carry the romantic undertow of an almost vanished America. The work of the photographers in the New Topographics exhibition, now collected in an austerely beautiful book of the same name by Steidl, still looks, for the most part, contemporary – and still seems troubling in its matter-of-factness, its almost dull reflection of the uniform and banal.

His debt to the English picturesque tradition is apparent in the trees and rock outcroppings that frame the scene, the panoramic landscape in the distance, and the stormy sky that echoes the human drama below.

The Romantic Landscape journeys through the four seasons of the Hudson Valley, immortalized by the Hudson Valley Painters. Through color- and computer-enhanced photographs, photographer Stan Lichens has captured the mystique and spectacular scenery of this historic region.

Sun-dappled valleys, rugged river terrain, vast mountains and forests, and gorgeous homes abound throughout the historic Hudson Valley. Among the residential portraits are The Locusts, a nineteenth-century estate in Staatsburg; the Vanderbilt Estate in Hyde Park; and Montgomery Place, one of the country’s most beautiful estates, in Red Hook. Equally dramatic are Lichens’ nature portraits of Haines Falls, farmland in Clinton Corners, the Rosendale Caves, wheatfields in Ancramdale, and a host of other inviting, perfect images captured at the perfect moment of the season.

Of all the scenery of the Hudson, the Kaatskill Mountains had the most witching effect on my boyish imagination. —Washington Irving

This is a photography book, and so beautiful that you will enjoy going back and looking at the photos over and over again. This books gives a true picture of some of the landscape views in the Hudson Valley. These photos leave you with a feeling of peace and serenity that can only come from such beautiful pastoral settings. Each time I open the book, I see something new.

This is an interesting collection of photographs, done in classic, semi-modern, and modern styles of an interesting part of our landscape heritage. Mr. Lichens has a keen eye and firm knowledge of what is important in this part of our world. It is a strong contribution to our catalogue of art, history, and photography.

Stan Lichens' 'The Romantic Landscape: Photographs In The Tradition of The New York Hudson Valley Painters' (2004) presents a collection of seventy-five exceptional photographs of the New York State's Hudson River Valley. Grouped in accordance with the four seasons, the valley--a cradle of American history and folklore, and home to Ichabod Crane and Rip Van Winkle--is alternately revealed in all its lush beauty, majesty, and haunted, twilit power.

Originally taken in black and white, Lichens, inspired by the Hudson River School Painters, has hand tinted each with "French watercolor pencils, pastels, and oil crayons" and then further "digitally manipulated" the images.

The results would probably have been far more powerful had Lichens let the original photographs speak for themselves, since the enhancement process greatly reduces their overall power in every instance.

Though the palate of the winter landscapes are suitably muted, the artifice is immediately and awkwardly apparent in most of the others. The overall effect is not one of subtle or studied romance, but of an easy-access pleasantness which reduces the images to the level of Sierra Club calendar art.

Only tangentially do the colorized photographs, which fairly caricaturize the profound beauty of nature, have any genuine relation to the work of Thomas Cole, Fredric E. Church, and Robert Walter Weir.

Lichens has also allowed his spouse, Lois Guarino, to write the introduction, which suggests Guarino may have provided a less than objective appraisal and overview of the book's content.

As the writer from Brooklyn has said the images are a little unrealistic but thats what makes the book so beautiful so enticing. I found the images inspiring and easy on the eyes. A true accomplishment in the world of photography.

A very beautiful introduction, by his spouse making you understand Lichens connection through the pictures he takes of the Hudson Valley.

The views in this book are breathtaking and stunning. The Hudson Valley is truly a stunning place!
