This is a list of works by Frederic Edwin Church (1826–1900), an American landscape painter who was part of the Hudson River School

This is a list of works by Frederic Edwin Church (1826–1900), an American landscape painter who was part of the Hudson River School. Church's paintings were inspired by his travels, including Africa, Europe, the Middle East, South America, and North America. Sketches are excluded-Church made thousands-unless they are in oil and very finished.

While the later portion duplicates the paintings of the first section, to an excessive degree, it also includes many of the major works not included in the exhibit, showing the studies and the finished works that grew from them, side by side. In addition to this, the quality of color reproductions is suburb; they are bright, clear, saturated and subtle. No single reproduction can successfully reproduce the elaborate compositions of Church; sometimes the shadow areas are too dark, sometimes the bright colors washed out or made garish, etc, but this book does an outstanding job.

In this lavishly illustrated new study, Gerald Carr focuses on several aspects of the life and art of Frederic Edwin Church (1826 - 1900): his individuality, his absorption with the natural sciences, and his lifelong zest for travel.
