Henry Ary was a resident artist of Hudson, New York and has come to be a key artist in the Hudson River School of painting. In 1832, Ary was painting portraits in Albany. It was not until he moved to Catskills, three years later, that Ary was encouraged to paint landscapes. By 1845, he began exhibiting his landscapes at the National Academy of Design. One of the first Hudson River painters to note the increasing presence of industry and commerce in the landscape, Ary embraced this aspect as a harmonious part of nature. Ary became instructor in painting and drawing at the Hudson Female Academy in 1854. He is most noted for his paintings of town views of Olana and Mount Merino.
