Plate (Troy from Mount Ida, Hudson River)
The source for both of these views is the Hudson River Port Folio (1821–26), a collection of prints based on paintings by William Guy Wall (1792–1864). For this series, Wall followed a popular tourist route up the Hudson River by steamboat, sketching the scenery along the way. Many of his pictures were subsequently reproduced on tablewares by English potteries seeking to capitalize on the demand for American landscape imagery.
