George Lafayette Clough (American 1824-1901)

George Lafayette Clough was born in Auburn, NY and was that city’s leading landscapist and most noted resident painter of the mid-century Hudson River School.

In 1844 the self-taught Clough opened his own studio there.  The following year, two (2) of his paintings were featured at the National Academy of Design.  He concentrated mostly on landscapes with his favorite sites being the Catskills, Adirondacks and upper New York State and New England.

Clough’s work is exhibited at the Buffalo Fine Arts Academy, the Brooklyn Art Association and the Boston Art Club.
